A mother and her two sons were killed while attempting to cross a busy road in Philadelphia, and police are investigating whether the cars that killed the family were drag racing at the time. The woman's two other sons are critically injured.

The accident happened around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday on Roosevelt Boulevard, a major street that runs through north and northeast Philadelphia. Investigators said the 27-year-old woman was in a crosswalk with her four sons when they were hit by a car, according to The Associated Press.
