Carjacked vehicle hits crowd in Philadelphia, killing 3 children

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police say a third child has died after a carjacked SUV plowed into a group of children and adults selling fruit at a Philadelphia street corner.

Police say the victims were 7- and 10-year-old brothers and their 15-year-old sister.

Their mother is in critical condition.

The two men who carjacked the SUV on Friday morning remain at large.

Homicide Capt. James Clark says the children and adults were selling the fruit to raise money for their church.
