The Tony-Award winning actress, Ruthie Ann Blumenstein whose 4-year-old daughter was killed in a vehicle crash loses her unborn baby.

Miles, who was 30 weeks pregnant, and a friend survived the crash on March fifth.

People gather at a sidewalk memorial for two children who were killed in March when they were struck by a auto driven by a woman who likely had a seizure behind the wheel, in the Park Slope neighborhood of the Brooklyn borough of NY. Abigail, Miles' daughter, and Lew's 1-year-old boy, Joshua, were both killed in the crash.

Investigators later discovered Bruns has a history of seizures and other medical conditions that may have led to the deadly incident, and a grand jury indicted her on reckless manslaughter charges earlier this month after prosecutors alleged she ignored doctors' orders when she climbed behind the wheel on the day of the collision. Burns alleges that she lost control of vehicle before speeding through a crosswalk.

He added: "We are consulting on significantly restricting or banning the use of desk-top studies to assess cladding systems". "Since the tragic events at Grenfell Tower, we have taken steps to ensure the immediate safety of all high rise buildings".

Miles, who also is known as Ruth Blumenstein, was pregnant when she was badly injured in the crash. She got severely injured in the accident, her unborn child has died because of injuries sustained in the accident, according to a lawyer for Ms. Blumenstein.

"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.

A statement from Ruthie and her husband Jonathan Blumenstein on the fundraiser read: 'We wish we could personally thank each and every person in this great community.

Bruns has pleaded not guilty, according to public records, and is due back in Brooklyn Supreme Court on June 13.
