ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - August 21, 2011

Four adults were also hurt in the accident, which occurred around 3:15 p.m. Saturday on eastbound Route 40. But authorities were still working Sunday to determine what caused the crash involving a Hummer H2 and a Ford Taurus wagon.

A 13-year-old Pomona boy and a 7-year-old Williamstown girl - both passengers in the wagon -were pronounced dead at the scene. Another passenger, the boy's 11-year-old brother, died Sunday afternoon at Cooper University Hospital in Camden.

Two other passengers - the boys' 9-year-old brother and the girl's 5-year-old sister - remained hospitalized Sunday night.

Both drivers and two other adults in the wagon were treated for undisclosed injuries, none of which were considered life-threatening.
