Two children - a 1-year-old boy and 4-year-old girl - were killed.

It happened around 12:30 p.m. near 5th Avenue and 9th Street in Park Slope.

"She had no emotion, no emotion at all", said bystander Jennifer Muniz, as she waited to speak with investigators following the horrific crash.

Witnesses raced into the crosswalk to help the victims, including a pregnant mother. The mother of the girl was one of the three people hit by the vehicle and she is alive, the New York Police Department said. "Like she had just parked the auto".

Left on the scene was the little boy's stroller, crumpled after being hit by the auto.

WPIX-TV reported that one of its reporters witnessed the pregnant woman and the two children get off a bus with a stroller when they were struck by a driver who appeared to be speeding up to make it through a light.

"Everybody was crying, yelling, screaming", she recounted.

The two children were pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The children's mom also was injured.

"She was crying, scared, everything". "She was like, 'Oh god, ' you know?"

Police say the driver was taken into custody, but no charges have been filed.
