SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico —

Authorities in Puerto Rico are looking for a fugitive driver they say hit and killed two women and four children.

Police say the group was run over when they got off a bus and began walking toward a public housing complex in the San Juan suburb of Rio Piedras. Col. Eliezer Colon Flores told reporters late Friday that one of the women who died was the children's grandmother.

He said witnesses told them the car was speeding and lost control. Witnesses said it jumped over a small median and then hit another car and struck the family, who was crossing in a designated area. Police say the couple in the car that was hit was injured.

Colon said the suspect and a passenger fled the scene.
