    A 60-year-old woman was killed and seven others were injured in Brooklyn Saturday afternoon when two SUVs collided and one went up on a curb and hit pedestrians, officials said.

    Police said a maroon Acura SUV ran a stop sign and slammed into a Jeep Cherokee just before 2:30 p.m. near the intersection of Quentin Road and West Fifth Street in Bensonhurst, causing the Jeep to flip over. The Acura then went up on the curb and struck a 1-year-old girl, her mother and the child's grandparents.

    The family was taken to Lutheran Medical Center, where the child's grandmother was pronounced dead on arrival, police said.

    Officials identified the deceased Sunday as Chenugor Dao of Brooklyn.

    The little girl suffered minor injuries, police said. She and her mother and grandfather were listed in stable condition.

    A 21-year-old woman who was a passenger in the Jeep was listed in critical but stable condition at Kings County Hospital. The driver and two other passengers from the Jeep were listed in stable condition at Maimonides Medical Center.

    No criminality is suspected, though an investigation is ongoing, police said.

    Residents in the area said accidents at that intersection are common.
