ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Asheville police say two children died and a woman is hospitalized after a car hit them as they crossed an intersection.

Police say in a release that Elvin Hernandez did not see them and struck all three about 6:15 p.m. Thursday. He was arrested and charged with not having a valid North Carolina driver’s license.

The release says 10-year-old Alexander Bautista-Gomez and 5-year-old Milena Alejandro-Bautista died at Mission Hospital. Seventy-two-year-old Aurora Garcia is at the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The release did not say if the three are related.

The investigation is ongoing.
