Two children were killed last week when their vehicle was struck by a vehicle involved in a police chase.

About the Tragic Accident

According to the Miami Herald, two men fled from police in a Chevy Camaro. The 29-year-old driver and 26-year-old passenger were being pursued by the police who suspected a weapon was in the car. 

The police had tried to use verbal commands to get the vehicle to stop but failed. The Chevy Camaro fled at a very high rate of speed and at one point lost the police just before crashing into a porch killing a 6-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl.

The Camaro also hit and injured two 5-year-old children, a 3-year-old, and a 23-year-old women.

The two men were arrested on site; the passenger of the vehicle may have suffered from a broken arm and hip. The officer did not find any weapon in the vehicle.

The incident is under review.
