An 11-year-old Brooklyn girl was killed when the SUV she was in flipped as the driver fled state police in upstate New York, officials said Thursday.

Monica Goods was riding in 2017 Dodge Journey on I-87 in the upstate town of Ulster when the state police tried to pull the driver over for a vehicle and traffic violation about 11:40 p.m. Tuesday.

The driver, Tristan Goods, 39, of Hollis, Queens, allegedly took off as a trooper approached his car.

The trooper pursued in his car and the two vehicles collided at mile marker 93.6. Goods lost control of his SUV and it flipped, officials said.

Monica, who state police said was not wearing a seatbelt, died at the scene.

Medics took Goods to Kingston Hospital with serious injuries, authorities said. He was later transferred to Westchester Medical Center and is expected to survive.

A state police spokesman declined to say how Goods and Monica were related.

State police are investigating the incident.
