Baby born after fatal hit-and-run crash dies

| No Comments

A premature baby delivered by emergency Cesarean after a hit-and-run crash that killed both parents has died, the LA Times reports.

The baby died Monday, one day after a hit-and-run crash in Brooklyn killed the baby's parents, Nathan and Raizy Glauber. The couple were on their way to the hospital after Raizy– who was seven months pregnant – complained of not feeling well, when a BMW struck the cab they were traveling in. The cab driver suffered minor injuries.

Police are searching for the driver of the BMW who fled after the crash, CBS News reports. The suspect has been identified by police as 44-year-old Julio Acevedo, who had a DWI just last month. Authorities say he was traveling at least 60 mph when his car struck the Glauber's cab.

Members of the Orthodox Jewish community to which the couple belonged are asking for Acevedo to turn himself in to authorities, calling him a "coward" for running. Hundreds of mourners packed the streets of the couple's Brooklyn neighborhood for their funerals on Sunday. A spokesman for the community said the baby will be named and circumcised according to Jewish tradition before being laid to rest, USA Today reports.
