Police hunt for 2 who carjacked SUV, killed 3 kids

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police are searching for two men who carjacked an SUV and plowed into a group of children and adults selling fruit at a Philadelphia street corner, killing three kids and seriously injuring two women.

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

Their mother is in critical condition, as is the carjack victim, a 45-year-old real estate agent who was forced into the backseat of her Toyota 4Runner. Another adult is injured but stable.

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

The SUV may have blown a tire as it turned a corner speeding.

More than $100,000 in rewards is being offered for the capture of the suspects, who fled on foot.
