2 children killed, 13 injured as car crashes into Michigan birthday party: Police

Two young children were killed and more than a dozen people were injured Saturday when a car drove into a building where a birthday party was being held just south of Detroit, police said.

A 66-year-old woman crashed her vehicle into the Swan Boat Club in Newport, Mich., at about 3 p.m., the Monroe County Sheriffs Department said. The vehicle careened about 25 feet inside the building, striking 15 people, including multiple children.

An 8-year-old girl and her 5-year-old brother were killed at the scene, which police described as “extremely chaotic” and emotional. Nine people were transported to local hospitals with serious injuries, including three children.

The status of the victims was not immediately clear.

The woman was charged with driving while intoxicated and was taken into custody, police said.
