Actress' unborn baby dies after Park Slope crash

Pregnant Ruthie Ann Miles

Broadway actress Ruthie Ann Miles has sadly lost the baby she was carrying following a fatal vehicle crash that claimed her daughter's life.

"Ruthie and her husband Jonathan lost their baby", said Rubinowitz in a statement.

The actress whose daughter was fatally struck by a driver in Park Slope lost the baby she was pregnant with at the time of the crash, her lawyer said Wednesday.

Miles was due to give birth to a baby girl this month.

Dorothy Burns, the driver of the vehicle, plead not guilty to several charges including manslaughter.

The death toll now has risen to three from the crash that initially claimed the lives of Miles' daughter, Abigail Blumenstein, 4, and another child, Joshua Lew, 1.

In March, Brooklyn police say Miles and her friend Lauren Lew, also from Hawaii, were walking in a marked crosswalk with their children when a vehicle ran a red light.

"The pain suffered by Ruthie and [her husband] Jonathan is almost impossible to fathom", read the statement from Rubinowitz, a personal-injury attorney representing the family.

Ruthie's friend Lauren Lew and her one-year-old son Joshua were also involved in the accident; Joshua was killed in the crash. Bruns was indicted earlier this month.

Her license was suspended just two days before the crash and she reportedly got eight tickets from red-light and speed cameras beforehand.

"This should never happen".

The musical theatre performer, who won a Tony Award for her role in The King And I, was 39 weeks pregnant with partner, Jonathan Blumenstein on Friday, when she lost her baby.

To make matters worse, the alleged culprit had previously racked up eight tickets for running red lights and speeding violations.
