Tony-winning actress Ruthie Ann Miles, whose four-year-old daughter was killed in a horrific Brooklyn car crash that also left Miles injured, has lost the baby she was carrying at the time of the crash, the family’s lawyer told the New York Daily News.
Miles was due to give birth to a girl this month.
The March 5 accident, in which a driver ran a red light (possibly while suffering a seizure) and struck five pedestrians, also claimed the life of a one-year-old boy.
“At the time of the crash Ruthie was pregnant and was severely injured. This past Friday Ruthie and Jonathan [Blumenstein] lost their baby, Sophia Rosemary Wong Blumenstein,” Ben Rubinowitz told the Daily News. “The pain suffered by Ruthie and Jonathan is nearly impossible to fathom.”
Miles won a Tony Award for her performance in the 2015 Broadway revival of The King and I. She had performed in February at a concert staging of popular ’80s musical Chess at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. She also appeared in the 2016 New York Encores! production of Sunday In The Park With George that starred Jake Gyllenhaal.
