Tragedy in Park Slope: Baby and 4-year old child killed by car in crosswalk


A driver killed two very small children yesterday in Park Slope on a crosswalk at the corner of Ninth Street and Fifth Avenue in Brooklyn.

The driver, Dorothy Bruns, hit the 4 year old daughter of Ruthie Ann Miles, who was also struck and hurt by the out-of-control car. Miles, a Tony award winning Broadway actress, is also pregnant. EMT arrived on the scene to the tragic sight, and had to assist the mother as her little girl lay on the ground. Miles is in stable condition at New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital.

Also hit and killed was a 1 year old little boy, who was strapped in his stroller as his mother walked him. A medical student on the scene tried to help the toddler as his mother screamed in agony, but the child died.

Left on the scene was the little boy's stroller, crumpled after being hit by the car.

The driver was driving a white Volvo and also hit numerous parked cars. According to her landlord, the driver allegedly had "seizures".

Updates to follow.
