Baby Delivered After Hit and Run, Dies
A baby delivered by Caesarean section, after his parents were killed in a hit-and-run accident, has also died. Doctors said his injuries were too severe, and attempts to save him failed.
Police have identified the man who fled the scene of the accident as Julio Acevedo, 44. Acevedo was arrested last month on drunk driving charges, New York Police Department Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne, said.
They were on their way to Long Island College Hospital. “She wasn’t feeling well and they went to check it out,” said Sarah Gluck, Raizy Glauber’s cousin.
While their cab was stopped at an intersection, a BMW slammed into them. The two occupants ran away on foot. The registered owner, Takia Walker, was arrested on insurance fraud charges.
“What can we do now?” Isaac Abraham, a community leader and neighbor of the couple, said on Monday. “We are looking at prosecuting, we want the people responsible, charged with triple homicide, nothing less.”
The young Orthodox Jewish couple were “preparing for the most joyous moment in their life, to become parents, getting ready to build their future and have a family,” he told CNN affliate WABC.
“A message to the driver, we know law enforcement is going to get to you,” he said. “But our message is, give yourself up, before we find you.”
A funeral was held on Sunday for the Glaubers.
