Carjackers Run Down Children

Police are looking for the two carjackers who crashed a stolen SUV into a family -- killing three children Friday.

Philadelphia police say the 15-year-old girl and her 10 and seven-year-old brothers were selling fruit on a street corner to raise money for their church when they were hit. Their mother and another woman were injured.

"This is one of the most saddest cases that I've come across," said Captain James Clark of the Philadelphia Police Department. "I mean, you have three innocent children that had the rest of their lives in front of them. They were taken in this fashion is very sad and it is very tragic.

"And we will find the individuals who were responsible for this."

The two suspects ran a red light and jumped a curb before hitting the family. They ran away from the crash. Police are offering a $40,000 dollar reward for information leading to their arrest and conviction.
