PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Police in the U.S. say two children have been killed and three people critically injured when a hijacked car lost control and hit a group of people near a fruit stand.

Homicide Capt. James Clark said two men forced a woman into the backseat of her vehicle at gunpoint, drove off but lost control in Philadelphia on Friday.

Clark says one of the children was pronounced dead at the scene and another at a hospital. Police say another young person is reported in critical condition, and the woman and another adult are also listed as critical. Police didn't say how the woman was injured.

The two men fled the scene and are being sought.
