SCARSDALE, Westchester (WABC) -- Police are continuing to investigate the deadly car crash that killed five children in Westchester on March 19.

Investigators obtained surveillance footage that shows the six siblings and cousins the day of the collision at a New Jersey shopping mall.

The children appear in the video to be panhandling.

Family members said that they were driving to Connecticut when their car veered off the road in Scarsdale and caught fire.

A 9-year-old boy was the only survivor and was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.

According to officials, the 16-year-old driver did not have a license or permit.

Police were called last year due to another panhandling incident involving the children.
