MIAMI -- July 1, 2012

A Georgia woman and three children have died after authorities say a minivan jumped a curbed and hit them as they walked home from a Marlins game in Miami.

A 50-year-old woman, a 13-year-old girl, a 14-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl were killed Saturday. The victims' names were not immediately available and it's not clear how they were related.

The Miami Herald reports the driver may have suffered a heart attack or another health problem. The driver's condition was not immediately available.

The accident occurred outside an apartment building. The driver rammed through the metal handrails that lined the building. Neighbors said they heard the crash from inside their homes.

A younger man on a bicycle was also struck, but police said he was not seriously injured.
