The four-year-old daughter of a Broadway star Ruthie Ann Miles and a toddler have died after being mowed down on a New York street. The pregnant actress fights for her life in hospital.
Authorities claim an out-of-control driver killed two children in front of their horrified mothers in New York City on Monday. One toddler, Josh Lew, was dragged around 30 metres down the road while still in his pram.
The other child, Abigail Blumenstein, the daughter of Broadway star Ruthie Ann Miles, was run over and killed.
Miles 'was bleeding from her head. They had to cut her coat off', bystander Leah Finnegan told the New York Post.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said a full investigation was underway regarding the tragic crash.
Twitter has flooded with fans and fellow celebrities calling to help the families involved.
