Driver who fatally struck 2 children in Park Slope charged with manslaughter

Ruthis Ann Miles daughter Abigail

Dorothy Bruns, 44, of Staten Island, was indicted by a grand jury on manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment, assault and other charges.

The driver who went through a red light and killed two young kids on Ninth Street in March - and renewed calls for redesigning major thoroughfares to ensure pedestrian and cyclist safety - has reportedly been charged for the deaths.

Bruns is expected to be arraigned in Brooklyn Supreme Court Thursday afternoon.

Bruns allegedly barreled through the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Ninth Street on March 5, killing 4-year-old Abigail Blumenstein and 1-year-old Joshua Lew, who was in a stroller that was dragged halfway down the block by the auto.

Tony Award-winning actress Ruthie Ann Miles' girl was murdered when a motorist lost control of her Vehicle. Blumenstein's unborn child was unharmed.

Charges against Bruns, who is in her 40s, are pending, according to the NYPD post.

On March 5th, two families-Lauren Lew, 34, and her 20-month-old son Joshua, and Ruthie Ann Miles, 34, and her 4-year-old daughter Abigail Blumenstein-were walking on 9th Street near 5th Avenue when investigators say Bruns ran through the red light on 9th Street.

Bruns' vehicle, a white Volvo, had received a dozen parking and camera violations since July 2016, according to city summons data. Police took her license the day after the crash. "I intend to now hold her accountable and urge all drivers to heed instructions of medical professionals and never drive a auto when told not to". The Brooklyn Eagle has confirmed the report, which District Attorney Eric Gonzalez is poised to announce at 11 a.m. Thursday. She previously worked at The Wall Street Journal, and has a master's degree from Northwestern University and bachelor's from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
