A baby boy delivered after a hit-and-run car crash in New York that killed both his parents has died, a family spokesman said Monday.
Doctors performed an emergency cesarean section at the site of the crash early Sunday in Brooklyn to save the boy’s life. His parents were using a car service to go to the hospital when their vehicle crashed into a BMW at an intersection.
The driver of the other car fled and has not been found. The owner of that car, identified by police as Takia Walker of the Bronx, was arrested Monday on insurance fraud charges, accused of allowing someone not on the insurance policy to drive the car, NBC New York reported.
Isaac Abraham, who serves as a spokesman for the family’s Orthodox Jewish community, said that the baby would be buried upstate after his body was released by the hospital. He demanded triple-homicide charges for the driver of the BMW.
“This coward left the scene of the accident not even bothering to check on the people of the other car,” he said, according to The Associated Press.
Both of the boy’s parents were 21. The mother, Raizy Glauber, was thrown from the car and landed under a parked tractor-trailer, witnesses said. The father, Nachman Glauber, was pinned in the car, and emergency workers cut open the roof to get to him.
Both died at nearby hospitals.
