Tragedy has struck yet again for Ruthie Ann Miles, a Tony Award-Winning actress who lost her 4-year-old daughter, Abigail Blumenstein, due to a horrifying crash in Brooklyn March 5.
Miles, who was about 30-weeks pregnant at the time of the accident, has lost her unborn baby, the New York Post reports.
The actress was at a crosswalk with another mother and their two small children when an out-of-control driver, Dorothy Bruns, crashed into her.
Miles’ family attorney, Ben Rubinowitz, announced Wednesday that the mother’s unborn daughter, who was due this month, has died from injuries sustained in the horrifying wreck.
“As many of you know, Ruthie and Jonathan’s daughter, Abigail, was tragically killed. At the time of the crash Ruthie was pregnant and was severely injured,” Rubinowitz said in a statement to the New York Post.
“This past Friday Ruthie and Jonathan lost their baby, Sophia Rosemary Wong Blumenstein,” Rubinowitz continued. “The pain suffered by Ruthie and Jonathan is nearly impossible to fathom. As you might imagine, they are overwhelmed by the sadness of the deaths of their children. Ruthie and Jonathan are grateful for the support of their family and friends but wish and ask that their privacy be respected during this most trying time. Ruthie and Jonathan continue to seek God’s presence, mercy and peace.”
The unborn baby was initially thought to be unharmed, as CrimeOnline previously reported.
Miles was reportedly on her way to a church event with her friend, Lauren Lew, who was also injured and tragically lost her one-year-old son, Josh Lew, due to the crash.
Bruns, who authorities say was driving against doctor’s orders at the time of the wreck, faces up to 15 years in prison on charges of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment, assault, and reckless driving.
