A Tony Award-winning actress whose daughter was hit and killed by a driver in March has lost the baby she was carrying when she too was struck, reports CBS New York. "Our focus and concern right now is for Ruthie and her family".

Hawaii actress Loretta Ables Sayre, a friend of Miles', expressed her condolences on Facebook.

"At the time of the crash Ruthie was pregnant and was severely injured".

The baby girl was due this month.

"The pain suffered by Ruthie and [her husband] Jonathan is almost impossible to fathom", read the statement from Rubinowitz, a personal-injury attorney representing the family.

Miles' daughter was killed in a Brooklyn crosswalk, along with the son of the woman, Lauren Lew, who was walking alongside the duo. "The pain suffered by Ruthie and Jonathan is almost impossible to fathom".


The Staten Island resident told emergency responders after the crash that she had suffered a seizure, which caused her to accelerate through the red light. Bruns was indicted earlier this month.

Gonzalez said Bruns was ordered not to drive for one year after she was hospitalized when she crashed into a parked vehicle less than two months before the Park Slope incident.

The star now has a recurring guest role in The Americans, while she has starred in productions of Avenue Q, Annie, Sweeney Todd and Here Lies Love.

'Abigail was a great delight to everyone who knew her; no one was immune to her joy and we miss her very much.

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. Her lawyer entered a not guilty plea on Dorothy's behalf.
