Two children killed as car crashes into building in US


 A young sister and brother were killed and several other people injured when a car crashed into a boat club in the US state of Michigan on Saturday where a birthday party was being held, Monroe County Sheriff Troy Goodnough has said.

“Unfortunately, in tragedy, two of the victims were pronounced deceased at the scene. This includes an 8-year-old female and a 5-year-old male who are siblings of each other,” Goodnough told a briefing.

Several other people were injured in the crash, with nine people, including three children, having been transported to hospitals with serious or life-threatening injuries, he said.

The car driver, a 66-year-old woman who crashed 25 feet into the building, was taken into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol that caused death, the sheriff added.
