PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia police say a third boy has died after a mother and her young children were struck while attempting to cross a busy highway. The woman was also killed and a fourth son was injured.

The accident happened around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday on Roosevelt Boulevard, a major street that runs through north and northeast Philadelphia.

Police Chief Inspector Scott Small says authorities are investigating whether cars were drag racing.

The woman and her 1-year-old were pronounced dead at the scene. The other three children were taken to a hospital, where the 9-month-old was pronounced dead. A police spokeswoman says a 4-year-old son was pronounced dead at a hospital at about 4:45 a.m. Wednesday and a 5-year-old boy is in stable condition.

The driver was taken in for questioning.
