Three Siblings Killed After Carjackers Crash Into Them at Fruit Stand

Three children were helping their mother sell fruit at a fruit stand when carjackers reportedly crashed into them, killing all three siblings and seriously hurting their mother, a family friend, and the woman who was carjacked.

This sickeningly sad incident took place on a Philadelphia street on Friday morning while the kids were helping sell fruit to raise money for their church. While working, they were suddenly struck by a white Toyota 4Runner that had been stolen by two men a few minutes earlier. The car reportedly jumped a curb after blowing a tire. The vehicle then slammed into a tree, and the suspects allegedly took off by foot and remain on the loose.


The suspects reportedly carjacked the vehicle and forced the female driver, who is a real estate agent and had just finished showing clients a home, to continue driving it. They then changed their minds, made her sit in the backseat, and drove the vehicle themselves -- at high speed -- until cops say they blew out a tire, which spurred the crash.

The innocent children who were killed as a result of these lunatics were a 10-year-old boy, who died on the scene, and his 7-year-old brother and 15-year-old sister, who were both taken to nearby hospitals, where they died soon after.

And their poor 34-year-old mother, who is reportedly in "extremely critical condition" may recover, physically, but will never, ever recover emotionally from the loss of not one, but THREE of her precious babies.

Their 69-year-old family friend, Thelma Brown, was seriously hurt, and the real estate agent is reportedly in critical, but stable condition at Temple University Hospital.

The children's father has asked the victims to do the right thing and turn themselves in.

So far, they're still hiding out like spineless, soulless cowards. The city is offering a $100,000 award for anyone who can provide information that leads to the men being captured and convicted. The suspects are thought to be injured. One was wearing a white T-shirt and basketball shorts and had a gun, while the other was wearing an orange shirt and basketball shorts.

What consequence do you feel the suspects should face if they are found guilty of this crime?
