Her daughter Abigail Blumenstein was killed in Brooklyn, New York.

Our thoughts are with the Ruthie and the Blumenstein family at this hard time. The unborn baby of mom Ruthie Ann Miles died from injuries from the crash, according to Miles' lawyer.

The Broadway star, 34, was involved in a horror auto crash which saw her 4 year old daughter, Abigail Blumenstein, lose her life.

The actress whose daughter was fatally struck by a driver in Park Slope lost the baby she was pregnant with at the time of the crash, her lawyer said Wednesday.

Family lawyer Ben Rubinowitz said the miscarriage had come as a direct result of the accident, which has seen Burns charged with manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment, assault and reckless driving. "As you might imagine, they are overwhelmed by the sadness of the deaths of their children".

At around 12:40pm, the 44-year-old female driver in question ran over Abigail and dragged Lauren's one-year-old son Josh over 100 feet down the road, while he was still in his pushchair. A fifth victim, a 46-year-old man, was also hit and injured.

Miles was in her 39th week of pregnancy, the Journal reported.

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. Her jail time may be up to 15 years, though this tragedy will last a lifetime for the grieving parents of both young children.
