Three kids are hospitalized with severe injuries after a collision in a neighborhood in Antioch Friday. 

The siblings, two boys and a girl were walking home from school at around 3:00 p.m. on Friday when a car spun out after a crash. All kids were hit and were severely hurt. 

“I am just at a loss for words, and I am numb,”  said Jami Hanlin, the mother of the three kids. 

Witnesses of the collision told police that a tan Mercury Mystique was traveling westbound on Sycamore Drive and was waiting for traffic to clear before turning left. At the same time, a red Chevrolet Impala was running at high speeds and attempted to pass the Mercury while turning left. 

The Impala pushed all three kids from the sidewalk and across the street and crashed into a house. 

All three kids were seriously injured and taken to hospitals.

Both drivers were hospitalized, and Antioch police have yet to give an update on their conditions and status.
