Carjackers Hit Crowd in Philly, Killing 2 Children

July 25, 2014  | 

Two men hijacked a white Jeep in northern Philadelphia on Friday, throwing its terrified owner into the back seat, officers said. The carjackers lost control of the vehicle about one mile into their joyride, careening into a group of people standing around a fruit cart. The fatal crash reportedly killed two children and severely injured three other people. Authorities are still hunting for the pair, reports the New York Daily News.

A few minutes before the accident, officers say two men pointed a gun at a woman in a white Jeep, then took control of her car. About one mile into the joyride, they allegedly lost control of the car and slammed into the five pedestrians standing near a corner fruit stand at Germantown and Alleghany Avenues.

A 10-year-old boy died on the scene, while another child died at at Temple University Hospital, Philadelphia's police homicide Capt. James Clark said. The SUV's owner, another adult, and a third child were listed in critical condition at the hospital.

Cops are still hunting for the carjackers, who escaped the scene on foot after crashing into a tree.
