A West Michigan teen was on a trip to New York City with her family Thursday when she was struck by a car on a sidewalk in an incident that sent at least 12 other people to the hospital.

The New York Post reports that 18-year-old Alyssa Elsman from Portage was killed in the crash.

Police do not believe that it was a terror attack, instead they have called it an accident.

People from all over have begun posting condolences on Elsman's Facebook page.
