Kalie Gill had been attending a church fundraising event in the neighbourhood of Yonkers on Friday night when the accident happened.
Her 12-year-old sister, Lindsey, was critically injured in the incident.
The girls' parents, Damien and Karen Gill, had lived in Fenagh, Co Leitrim before returning to New York earlier this year.
A spokesperson for the Department of Foreign Affairs said they have been contacted by relatives in Ireland and will provide consular assistance if requested.
