ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Teddy bears and burning candles lined the scene in Philadelphia on Saturday (July 26) where a carjacked SUV swerved out of control on Friday (July 25), killing three children taking part in a church fundraiser. The three children were killed and three adults, including their mother, were injured on when the SUV struck a sidewalk church fundraiser, police said. The crash occurred at about 11:15 a.m. EDT (1515gmt) after two men used a gun to force a 45-year-old woman driving a white SUV into the back seat and made off with the car, Philadelphia Police Captain James Clark told a news conference. The suspects were driving at high speed when a tire apparently blew out, causing the car to careen into the family members selling fruit on the sidewalk to raise money for their church, police said. The mother was critically injured and transported to a local hospital, and all of her three children - ages 7, 10 and 15 - were killed in the crash, Clark said. An elderly friend of the family also was struck, though she was listed in stable condition on Friday.
