Two children were killed in Philadelphia in a hit-and-run accident Friday morning after two suspects carjacked a vehicle and then plowed it into a crowd.
In addition to the children, one of whom was 10 years old, three more were injured when a white Toyota SUV ran a red light and jumped a curb into a crowd of people possibly standing at a fruit stand, CBS Philadelphia reported

NBC 10 said the 10-year-old died at the scene
while another child, whose age hasn’t been released, died at a hospital. A child and two adults remain in critical condition at a nearby hospital.
A $40,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the two males involved in the incident.
One of the people in critical condition is the original driver of the car, a woman who apparently was forced into the vehicle’s backseat after two men, described only as black and Hispanic males, carjacked her, CBS said.
After the car ran into the crowd, the two men got out and ran away.
“Bottom line, we will use all the resources we have at our disposal, that’s the bottom line,” Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said, according to CBS.
This hit-and-run accident occurred just a day after police arrested a suspect in connection with a July 19 hit-and-run death in Camden.
Jose Sosa, 61, was taken to the jail and charged with leaving the scene of a fatal collision, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license and leaving an endangered victim. He is being held on $85,000 bail.
