A failed suicide attempt led to disaster when a man tried to kill himself by crashing his car on the Pacific Coast Highway and accidentally hit a teenage girl who was walking home from school.

Emily Rose Shane, 13, was on her way home when she was hit by a car driven by Sina Khankhanian, 28, on PCH and Heathcliff Drive.

According to authorities, Khankhanian was attempting to commit suicide when he hit the 8th grader on accident.

The force of the impact made Shane’s body fly 30 feet into the air. Khankhanian’s car collided with a utility pole and flipped over.

Witnesses at the scene said that Khankhanian was driving erratically and was tailgating other cars, passing them on the right side and creating dangerous driving conditions for everyone on the road.

Khankhanian’s friends and family said that he suffers from autism and has difficulty understanding the consequences of his actions. They say he was angry that day as well, because he had just been fired from his job in Winnetka and he simply lost control of his car.
