PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (AP) – Philadelphia police are identifying the three children killed by carjackers who crashed into their sidewalk fruit stand and then fled.

The children’s mother, 34-year-old Keisha Williams, remains critically injured.

A police spokeswoman on Saturday identifies Williams’ slain children as 15-year-old Keiearra Williams, 10-year-old Thomas Reed and 7-year-old Terrence Moore.

Police say they died Friday after two men carjacked a real estate agent, then lost control of the vehicle and plowed into the family.

Friends say Williams and her children regularly sold fruit as part of a church effort to raise money for a playground.

The 45-year-old carjack victim and a 65-year-old neighbor of Williams were also injured. Their names were not released, and their conditions weren’t immediately available.
