A 17-year-old girl was killed early Saturday after she was struck by a van in Marine Park.

The teenager was pronounced dead on the scene. Two of the three others were taken to Coney Island Hospital after the accident and treated for trauma.
The driver and a male victim refused medical attention. No charges have been filed against the driver at this time.
