The two children were in a gold Nissan Altima when the car was hit by another vehicle which had hydroplaned.

The driver of a black Dodge Ram hydroplaned and lost control of his car, police said. He crashed into the Altima that a woman was driving with the two children.
The Nissan Altima was pushed through a guardrail and rolled onto the service road.
