Their moms, Lauren Lew and Tony award-winning actress Ruthie Ann Miles, were both injured and are hospitalized at Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. Unfortunately, the two children died. The white vehicle was going really fast.

A mangled baby stroller lay beneath the Volvo's right-rear wheel following the crash, which left a visible trail of gore on the road beside a kid-sized shoe. "It was something you see in a horror movie".
