  • Two kids were killed when a woman sped through a red light in Brooklyn on Monday and struck a family of three out for a walk

Four-year-old Abigail Blumenstein and one-year-old Joshua Lew died after being struck by a vehicle while walking alongside their mothers, Ruthie Ann Blumenstein and Lauren Lew, who were also injured in the horrifying wreck.

The stricken mother of the 1-year-old boy in the stroller knelt beside her son's body on Ninth Street near Fifth Avenue in Park Slope and frantically tried to revive him, a witness said.

According to NY Daily News, the driver, a 44-year old woman, has reportedly claimed to have suffered a seizure and has no memory of the crash. A 46-year-old man and another woman, Lauren Lew, were also injured.

Miles is best known for her 2015 role in "The King and I" on Broadway, which won her a Tony award for "Best Featured Actress in a Musical". Her unborn child reportedly survived, and the actress was in stable condition at New York Methodist Hospital as of Tuesday.

A GoFundMe page set up to raise an emergency fund for Miles had received more than US$250,000 (RM975,300) from almost 5,000 people in 15 hours. The driver told police she had medical issues, which NBC reported is still being investigated. "Please help my friend @RuthieAnnMiles and her family", she wrote alongside the link. A second woman who was also injured is in stable condition.

Dorothy Bruns, 44, reportedly told police she was trying to avoid hitting a auto and swerved out of the way. "She is always kind and always has a smile". "All she kept saying was, 'My baby, my baby, ' and she kept on trying to get up", witness De'sir'ee Williams said.

On Saturday, two days before the accident, Miles tweeted thanks to Apple Support for helping her recover 3,500 lost photos and videos, mainly of her baby daughter. She was taken from the scene to undergo toxicology tests. She had a recurring role on the FX series "The Americans". She said she was unaware of striking anyone when she woke up behind the wheel.

"For Chirlane and I obviously this is very personal. This loss of life is tragic, painful for all of us, particularly those of us who are parents".
