Police found Daniels unconscious on the street with severe head trauma and she was taken to Staten Island University Hospital South where she was pronounced dead.
The 38-year-old driver remained on the scene, police said.
Daniels was a sophomore at New Dorp High School's Law Institute and a junior varsity cheerleader, according to a letter sent out by the principal over the weekend. The school said grief counselors would be available on Monday.
