Actress' unborn child dies as result of fatal Park Slope crash

At 12:41 p.m., driver Dorothy Bruns ran through a red light at 9th Street and 5th Avenue, killing Abigail and Joshua and injuring Miles and Lew.

Ms. Miles was walking with her friend Lauren Lew and their two young children across Ninth Street on March 5 when a auto rolled through a red light and accelerated. But shortly after the collision, Miles's family said her unborn baby survived the ordeal in a statement released via social media.

At the time of the accident in March, Miles, who was pregnant, was badly injured and spent some time in the intensive care unit.

"The pain suffered by Ruthie and Jonathan is almost impossible to fathom", he added. Another source revealed Ruthie and her husband were thrilled to be expecting again.

While paramedics attempted to give Abigail CPR at the scene, both children tragically died.

The driver of the vehicle, Dorothy Burns, has been charged with manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment and assault and reckless driving.

The Daily News wrote that Bruns, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, seizures, and failing health, had her license suspended two days after the crash. With her sweetest smile and loveliest personality, she was very much like her mother. She is the Staten Island driver who was involved in the fatal crash.

Friends of the Tony Award-winning Broadway star claim that Ruthie and Jonathan were excited to add to their growing family.

As for the woman behind the wheel - earlier this month, she was charged with involuntary manslaughter after pleading "not guilty". Our hearts go out to Ruthie, Jonathan and their families.
