Police say the driver was in custody after the incident in Park Slope.

After striking the victims, the driver crossed into oncoming traffic and crashed into a parked vehicle, an NYPD source told ABC News.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that five people were taken to a local hospital, including the children who died.

“It’s really, really sad what happened today,” de Blasio said of the crash.

“This loss of life is tragic and painful for all of us, particularly those of us who are parents,” he said.
