Ruthie Ann Miles Out of ICU, Second Baby Safe After Crash That Killed Daughter

Broadway star Ruthie Ann Miles is now out of the intensive care unit after a fatal car crash that killed her four-year-old daughter and a one-year-old boy this week.

Miles was with another mother, Lauren Lew, when 44-year-old driver Dorothy Bruns sped through a red light and ran over their children, Abigail and Joshua, in Brooklyn on March 5.

Miles, who is pregnant with her second baby, was in critical condition. Lew also sustained injuries.
