  • Police: Suicide Attempt by Boy Jumping From Overpass Kills Driver Below

Her friend, sitting in front in the passenger seat, managed to turn the wheel and stop the vehicle.

Harris was driving a Ford Escape when the boy jumped from an overpass above the freeway.

The impact of the boy landing on the auto incapacitated Harris. He was not injured in the incident.

Harris's mother, Leigh Miller, told NBC Washington her daughter was a counseling student who wanted to work with troubled youths and would have helped the boy if she'd had the chance.

Police responded to the incident at 4:18 p.m. local time and Harris was pronounced dead at the scene.

Corinne Geller, spokeswoman for the state police, said in a statement that the passenger in the auto was unhurt but the boy suffered life-threatening injuries.

Harris graduated from Towson University with summa cum laude honors and was a 2013 graduate of Sherwood High School in Sandy Spring.

"This is the type of kid she would be working with", Patrick Harris told ABC 7.

"She was fearless; she was absolutely fearless", he said, according to the Washington Post. "She was loved by her friends, she was dearly loved by her family, she was admired by her peers, and she was just a shining star".

Ironically, the woman was studying mental health counseling in a graduate program, aspiring to help people like the suicidal boy who caused her own death.
