Kaimuki High School graduate Ruthie Ann Miles, a Broadway star who lost her daughter in a freak Brooklyn crash in March, has lost her unborn daughter, her attorney said.

"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.

The woman allegedly responsible for the March crash, Dorothy Bruns, has been charged with manslaughter.

It's now been confirmed that, sadly, Miles has lost the child.

Blumenstein's 4-year-old daughter, Abigail, and Lew's 1-year-old son, Joshua, were killed, and Blumenstein was seriously injured.

The death of the unborn child will go unpunished, however, as state homicide legislation applies only after a baby is born, thus preventing prosecutors from adding further charges.

"The pain suffered by Ruthie and Jonathan is almost impossible to fathom", Rubinowitz said. Bruns was indicted earlier this month. "She should never have been allowed to be driving a vehicle after what we know".

The musical theatre performer, who won a Tony Award for her role in The King And I, was 39 weeks pregnant with partner, Jonathan Blumenstein on Friday, when she lost her baby.

Bruns claims she had a seizure before running the red light, which is what ultimately led to the horrific crash.
