Driver charged in toddler deaths in crosswalk kills herself

People gather at a sidewalk memorial for two children who were killed the previous week when they were struck by a car in Brooklyn New York

On March 5th, Ruthie Ann Miles, a Tony award-winning actress, and her friend Lauren Lew were walking in Park Slope with their children-Miles's four-year-old daughter Abigail and Lew's 20-month-old son Joshua-and were crossing 9th Street at Fifth Avenue when Bruns came barreling through a red light.

Dorothy was found dead of a suicide on Tuesday (November 6) at her home in Staten Island, New York.

Sources say bottles of prescription pills were found nearby along with an apparent suicide note.

Bruns was facing a 15-year jail term after being charged with manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment and assault. Miles, Lew and another pedestrian were all injured in the crash and Miles, who was seven months pregnant at the time, suffered a miscarriage months later due to injuries she sustained that day, according to NBC 4 NY.

Killed were 1-year-old Joshua Lew and 4-year-old Abigail Blumenstein.

One of the mothers is Broadway actress Ruthy Ann Miles, whose unborn baby later died.

When the crash occurred in March, Bruns had allegedly been driving her auto westbound on 9th street when she allegedly ran a red light and struck a group of pedestrians, including Miles, Lew, and their children.

She was 39 weeks pregnant.

When NBC's Peter Alexander tried to stand up for his peer, Trump turned his ire on him as well. The shocking exchange came as Acosta was asking the president about the migrant caravan.


Prosecutors say doctors had told Bruns not to drive after she had a previous medical episode while behind the wheel.

The killer also told cops afterwards that she had been suffering from the effects of multiple sclerosis.

In September 2017, Bruns struck a pedestrian in Long Island City, Queens.
