Hawaii born Broadway actress injured in tragic crash loses unborn baby

Unborn baby of Hawaii actress Ruthie Ann Miles, who lost daughter in New York crash, dies

Unborn baby of Hawaii actress Ruthie Ann Miles, who lost daughter in New York crash, dies

Blumenstein, a Tony-winning Broadway actress whose stage name is Ruthie Ann Miles, was in the intersection of Ninth Street and Fifth Avenue in Park Slope with her friend Lauren Lew on March 5 when Dorothy Bruns ran the red light and struck the two women, their two small children and a male pedestrian. In this case, it seems unfair as Ruthie and Jonathan were expecting their baby girl this month. "This past Friday Ruthie and Jonathan lost their baby, Sophia Rosemary Wong Blumenstein", their lawyer Ben Rubinowitz said in a statement.

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

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.


"The pain suffered by Ruthie and Jonathan is almost impossible to fathom", he added.

There is more heartbreak for one of the families that lost their child in a horrific Brooklyn crash. "She should never have been allowed to be driving a vehicle after what we know", commented New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Ruthie Ann Miles accepts the award for best performance by an actress in a featured role in a musical for "The King & I" at the 69th annual Tony Awards in NY. Rubinowitz confirmed she was 39 weeks pregnant when she lost her baby Friday. "As you might imagine, they are overwhelmed by the sadness of the deaths of their children".
