Temple University Hospital has announced today that the mother of three children killed in a car crash caused by a carjacking, who was also critically injured in the crash, has died.
Keisha Williams, 34, died on Thursday night.
She had remained hospitalized Monday as hundreds attended a funeral for her children, Keiearra Williams, 15, Thomas Joseph Reid, 10, and Terrence Williams, 7, who were all killed on Friday, July 25.
The three children were selling fruits and vegetables at a roadside stand at Germantown and Allegheny avenues as part of a fundraiser for their church when they, their mother, and 67-year-old Thelma Brown were struck by an out-of-control Toyota 4Runner driven by two carjackers.
Alleged carjackers Cornelius Crawford, 22, and Jonathan Rosa, 19, are currently scheduled to have a preliminary hearing on August 13.
Each faces three murder charges for the July 25 incident where they assaulted a real estate agent, stole her SUV, then while driving away at rapid speed, crashed into the fruit stand.
The family has set up a charitable fund for Williams' two surviving daughters.
