The Broadway community is surrounding beloved Tony Award Winner, Ruthie Ann Miles, as she endures one of life’s gravest heartbreaks. On March 5, Miles, pregnant with her second child, along with her 4-year-old daughter, Abigail Blumenstein, were involved in a fatal car accident.
While in Brooklyn, New York, a driver struck Miles’ vehicle, along with three other pedestrians after running a red light. Abigail, along with fellow passenger, one-year-old Joshua Lew, both died in the accident. Miles is currently hospitalized for injuries sustained.
Investigations on the traffic incident are currently underway, but no arrests have been made at this time. Friends of the beloved actress have started a GoFundMe page to help with the medical costs and funeral costs for the late child.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and family during this heartbreaking time.
