Police say the Philadelphia district attorney's office has approved charging two robbery suspects with four counts of murder for a traffic crash that killed a woman and three young children. The latest charges against 18-year-old Donta Cradock and 20-year-old Ivan Rodriguez were announced Thursday afternoon. The men also are charged with robbery, conspiracy and related offenses.

Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey says police were not chasing the car Cradock was driving at the time of Wednesday evening's crash. The car jumped a curb and plowed into the children in front of their home.

The men haven't been arraigned and apparently don't have lawyers yet. One of them is hospitalized.
