NEW YORK (CNN) — Trick-or-treaters were among the victims after a car mounted the sidewalk and hit a group of pedestrians in New York City, police said.

Three people, including a 10-year-old girl, were killed in the collision in the Bronx on Saturday, the New York City Police Department said in a statement.

The driver of the car and three pedestrians, including two young girls, are being treated at Jacobi Hospital, police said.

Officials say the car, driven by a 52-year-old man, bumped the rear of another car before crashing into six trick-or-treaters, our Tribune affiliate PIX 11 reports.

The car flew onto the sidewalk, pinning several of the pedestrians. A 65-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene, according to PIX 11.

A 24-year-old man and 10-year-old girl were rushed to Jacobi Medical Center where they were pronounced dead.

Their identities have not been released pending family notification.
