Unborn baby dies from injuries in Brooklyn crash

Miles was due to give birth this month.

Pregnant Ruthie Ann Miles, 35, and her 4-year-old daughter Abigail Blumenstein, were involved in a horrific NYC auto crash in March after a driver allegedly struck them with her vehicle in Brooklyn while they were walking.

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", said a statement issued to the media by Ben Rabinowitz, an attorney representing the Blumenstein family. "The pain suffered by Ruthie and Jonathan is almost impossible to fathom".

The Hawaii born actress lost her unborn child. A fifth victim, a 46-year-old man, was also hit and injured.

Rubinowitz confirmed she was 39 weeks pregnant when she lost her baby Friday. Abigail, Miles' daughter, and Lew's 1-year-old boy, Joshua, were both killed in the crash.
