2 Philadelphia carjackers sought; 3 young siblings killed

Police in Philadelphia are still hunting for a pair of carjackers who rammed a stolen SUV into a family selling fruit for their church, killing three young siblings.

A hospital spokeswoman says the children's 34-year-old mother remains in critical condition Saturday at Temple University Hospital.

The slain children were 7, 10 and 15.

Police say the two suspects fled on foot after crashing the stolen car Friday morning at a North Philadelphia intersection.

Authorities say the suspects carjacked a real estate agent at gunpoint and forced her into the back seat.

They say the men were speeding when they crashed a mile (1.6 kilometres) away.

The 45-year-old agent and a 65-year-old friend of the family were also hospitalized.

Their conditions weren't immediately available Saturday.
