Three Children Dead After Philly Robbery

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Authorities say a car fleeing a Philadelphia
robbery scene and being chased by police has jumped a curb and
crashed into a crowd, killing three children under age 10 and
gravely injuring a woman.

Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey says it happened Wednesday
night in Feltonville, a neighborhood of row houses in North
Philadelphia.

He says the incident began with two men stealing a motorcycle at
gunpoint. He says one fled on the motorcycle and the other fled in
a car.

When the car jumped the curb it became wedged between a house
and a pole. The woman it hit is the mother of at least one of the
dead children.

The police commissioner says, "It's a tragedy."

Police say the car driver was injured and arrested at the scene.
They say the motorcycle rider was arrested at his nearby home.
