A Martin County School bus had stopped and lowered its stop arm on the road near Hobe Sound just before a northbound pickup truck slammed into the children as they crossed the southbound lane, Martin County Police sergeant said.

9-year-old twin sisters, Bethany and Ariadne Freeman and their 11-year-old brother, Angelo Freeman, died at the scene, he said. The Delray Beach residents were students at a nearby Palm Beach Elementary School.

FHP said, the 37-year-old pickup driver of Jensen Beach was arrested and charged with three counts of reckless homicide and one misdemeanor count of passing a school bus when arm signal device is extended and causing bodily injury. He was being held at the Martin County Jail on a $15,000 surety bond.

FHP said, an 18-year-old boy not related to the deceased siblings suffered multiple broken bones when he was also hit by the pickup. That child was in critical condition at a  hospital and was undergoing surgery.
