Driver Charged With Killing 2 Children In Park Slope Crosswalk Found Dead

The New York woman charged in a fatal auto accident that killed the toddler and unborn child of a pregnant Broadway actress was found dead of an apparent suicide in her Staten Island home Wednesday, a police spokesperson told Fox News.

According to People, police were called to Bruns' Staten Island home on Monday afternoon by a friend who checked in on her, only to find her unconscious in her bedroom.

On March 5, Bruns was behind the wheel of her vehicle when she fatally hit two children in a Brooklyn crosswalk and caused a woman to lose her unborn child.

A driver who faced 15 years in jail for killing two young children and an unborn baby has taken her own life, police say. During the episode, she lost control of her vehicle, which traveled forward, fatally striking Joshua Lew, 1, and Abigail Blumstein, 4, who were crossing the intersection with their mothers, who were also injured.

In March, Dorothy Bruns allegedly ran a red light and struck a then-pregnant Miles, 35, and her daughter, Abigail Blumenstein, as they crossed the road in Brooklyn, New York.

In addition to manslaughter, Bruns was charged with criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment, assault and reckless driving. Abigail died and her mother, who was 39 weeks pregnant at the time, was injured.

Bruns had multiple sclerosis, which prompted questions about whether she was fit to drive.

Miles is best known for her Tony Award-winning performance as Lady Thiang in the revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I. Laura Lew and her one-year-old son Joshua (right) were also hit.
