ESCONDIDO, Calif. (KGTV) – Four people, including two boys, were struck by a vehicle and killed on an Escondido street Tuesday evening.

The collision involving the pedestrians and a 2014 Mazda 3 was reported just before 8:30 p.m. on San Pasqual Valley Road at Oak Hill Drive, according to Escondido police.

Police said the vehicle was traveling northbound when it hit the group. A 33-year-old man and 11-year-old boy died at the scene. A 50-year-old woman and 10-year-old boy were taken to the hospital where they later died from their injuries.

According to police, the Mazda’s 28-year-old female driver was hospitalized with minor injuries.

The driver, an Escondido resident, was not arrested, police said.

Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor in the crash, according to police.

Police told 10News the boys are brothers and the female victim was their grandmother. The man was believed to have been dating the children's mother, according to police.

Officers were still investigating how fast the woman was driving and where the pedestrians were in the road when they were struck.

A GoFundMe campaign for funeral expenses has been started to help the family.
