A two-vehicle crash this afternoon in Riverdale ended with seven people, five of them children, taken to the hospital.

Prince George's County Police say two SUVs collided at 57th Avenue and Jennifer Place around 3:30 pm. One of the vehicles lost control, and veered into the yard of a home where several children were playing in a wading pool.

Five children, who range in age from 5 to 10 years old, are in stable condition, according to police.

Two adults who were transported to the hospital suffered minor injuries.
