Tony victor Ruthie Ann Miles and her husband, Jonathan Blumenstein, whose four-year-old daughter, Abigail Blumenstein, was killed in a vehicle crash in March, have lost the unborn baby Miles was carrying during the tragic accident, according to The Daily News.

Miles, who also is known as Ruth Blumenstein, was pregnant when she was badly injured in the crash. "This past Friday Ruthie and Jonathan lost their baby, Sophia Rosemary Wong Blumenstein", their lawyer Ben Rubinowitz said in a statement. Her jail time may be up to 15 years, though this tragedy will last a lifetime for the grieving parents of both young children.

The driver then crashed into parked cars on the opposite side of the street. "The pain suffered by Ruthie and Jonathan is almost impossible to fathom", said lawyer Ben Rubinowitz. Although the injured party got the license plate number and reported the incident to police, they reportedly never followed up.


A city housing authority worker was hit six months prior to the fatal accident, with Bruns leaving the woman injured and driving away from the crime scene.

Ruthie Ann Blumenstein, the pregnant Brooklyn mother whose child was killed after being struck by a driver who ran a red light in Park Slope in March, has lost her unborn child, her family's lawyer told the New York Daily News Wednesday. "She should never have been allowed to be driving a vehicle after what we know".

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.


"They are overwhelmed by the sadness of the deaths of their children", added Rubinowitz.

To make matters worse, the alleged culprit had previously racked up eight tickets for running red lights and speeding violations.
