It has now been confirmed that Ruthie has lost the baby girl she was due to give birth to this month. The incident happened on March 5 when driver Dorothy Bruns ran a red light, slamming into the group.
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.
"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.
Blumenstein's 4-year-old daughter, Abigail, and Lew's 1-year-old son, Joshua, were killed, and Blumenstein was seriously injured.
'The pain suffered by Ruthie and Jonathan is almost impossible to fathom, ' they added.
Her license was suspended just two days before the crash and she reportedly got eight tickets from red-light and speed cameras beforehand.
The driver of the vehicle, Dorothy Bruns, was charged with manslaughter. Bruns was indicted earlier this month.
Ruthie won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her role in the 2015 revival of The King And I. "As you might imagine, they are overwhelmed by the sadness of the deaths of their children".
