12 Year Old Girl Car Grandpa Dies

12 Year Old Girl Car Grandpa Dies - 12-year-old Miranda Bowman is being a hailed a hero after she steered her grandfather's car to safety when he died at the wheel. The New Jersey girl says her grandfather told her he didn't feel well, then closed his eyes and put his head down – with his foot on the accelerator. Bowman then jumped into the driver's seat and put her foot on the brake to slow the car down.

When her grandfather died at the wheel of the car, with his foot on the accelerator, 12-year-old Miranda Bowman didn't waste a moment.

As the car approached 80 mph last Tuesday, Bowman tried to call 911 but couldn't unlock her cellphone, the AP reports. So she took off her seatbelt and slid over in the front seat, pushed the brake and steered in the direction of some bushes and trees on the side of the road.

Bowman, who was going back to her home in Burlington Township, N.J., after a day of go-kart racing with 63-year-old Paul Parker, escaped the crash with no injuries, according to the news outlet.

Parker, who had a chronic heart condition, died of heart failure, say relatives. "He said he didn't feel well and told me to just keep talking to him," Miranda told the Burlington County Times. "Then he said he was scared, closed his eyes, and put his head on the glass. That's when I knew he was dead."
