Local media reported that the children were taken to hospital but later died of their injuries. One local said on X that the intersection of Riverdale Road and Taylor was "infuriating," as drivers did not follow laws and children often dashed out.
Officials told ABC 7 News that the suspected driver was linked to the school the children attended, Riverdale Park Elementary School.
Prince George's County Police Department took over the investigation from Riverdale Park Police shortly after. The Messenger approached PCPD for comment but did not immediately receive a response.
