Woman killed, 3 kids hurt when car jumps curb in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say a car jumped a curb and ran over four pedestrians, killing a 63-year-old woman and injuring three of her young relatives.

Lt. Debra Brounstein says the car went onto the sidewalk after colliding with another vehicle Saturday afternoon in North Hollywood.

The woman died at a hospital. The children — ages 13, 8 and 7 — and the driver of one of the vehicles were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the woman and the 3 children are related.

The incident is under investigation. Brounstein says drugs or alcohol do not appear to be involved.
