Ruthie Ann Miles

Our thoughts and prayer go to Tony Award winner Ruthie Ann Miles who was injured and her 4-year-old daughter Abigail killed when they were struck by a car in Brooklyn on Monday. The driver, who allegedly ran a red light, said she had a seizure and didn’t remember the crash. Miles, whose real name is Ruthie Ann Blumstein, was with a friend whose 1-year-old son also was killed. A 46-year-old man was also hit by the car. Miles, who is pregnant, remained in a hospital in stable condition on Tuesday. Miles won a Tony for her performance in the 2015 Broadway revival of The King and I. Fellow Broadway stars offered condolences on Tuesday. “Heartsick for Ruthie and her family,” tweeted Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda.

GoFundMe page has been set up with contributions going to the family. As of Tuesday morning, the page had raised over $74,148 of its $5,000 goal.
