Vehicle ploughs into pedestrians - two children killed, pregnant woman critical

2 kids dead and 5 injured in Brooklyn road accident 632018

The crash took place at 9th Street and Fifth Avenue at around 12:30 p.m. The sedan then came to a rest on the side of the street - with a crushed stroller under its back wheels. She has not been charged in the hit-and-run, and was still at NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn early Tuesday, according to the Daily News.

The driver remained emotionless after the collision that claimed the lives of the 1- and 4-year-old kids, firing off text messages on her phone as paramedics loaded her into an ambulance, witnesses claimed.

Miles is also the mother of 4-year-old victim Abigail Blumenstein. Witnesses said she appeared to be in her mid-30s.

"It's really, really sad what happened today", Mayor Bill de Blasio said. That's where a 43-year-old woman allegedly plowed into the crosswalk, killing a little boy and a little girl and sending a pregnant woman and others to the hospital.

"She had no emotion, no emotion at all", said bystander Jennifer Muniz, as she waited to speak with investigators following the horrific crash. The woman was taking care of the boy, they said.

"Everybody was crying, yelling, screaming", she recounted. "People trying to cover the baby to stop her from bleeding".

The driver apparently attempted to take off after hitting the victims, but crashed into another vehicle. Jessica Sierra immediately ran to help the little girl. "All she kept saying was, 'my baby my baby and she kept on trying to get up, '" said witness De'sir'ee Williams.
