A mother and an infant were killed, and her three children injured after a 53-year-old Fishkill resident driving an SUV hit the group as they crossed Route 52 in Fishkill.

The incident occurred around 8:40 p.m. Sunday near the I-84 Diner near Old Glenham Road, when the driver of the 2003 GMC Yukon failed to see the family attempting to cross the road from the north shoulder and struck them, state police said.

The mother, Zuleyma Lopez, 28, and her child, Abel E. Torres-Lopez, 10 months, were declared dead at the scene, the three other children were transported to Westchester Medical Center, state police said.
