Driver charged in toddler deaths in Brooklyn crosswalk kills herself

A New York City woman who had been charged in a vehicle crash that killed a Broadway star's unborn baby, her 4-year-old daughter and another child was found dead Tuesday, having apparently taken her own life.

Dorothy Bruns, 45, was found dead on her bed inside her Concord home by a friend late Tuesday afternoon - with a bottle of prescription anti-depressant pills and the small handwritten note nearby, sources said. Both children died in a Park Slope crash on March 5, 2018.

Bruns had been facing a slew of charges, including criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment and assault, all stemming from the crash, according to the New York Daily News.

Blumemstein, who is a Broadway actress, survived but her unborn baby died as a result of her injuries.

She was 39 weeks pregnant.

When the crash occurred in March, Bruns had allegedly been driving her auto westbound on 9th street when she allegedly ran a red light and struck a group of pedestrians, including Miles, Lew, and their children.

The killer also told cops afterwards that she had been suffering from the effects of multiple sclerosis.

Prosecutors said a doctor had told Bruns to not drive, and her driving record revealed several past violations, including speeding and running red lights.

Miles is best known for her Tony Award-winning performance as Lady Thiang in the revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I.
