Baby delivered after fatal hit-and-run crash that killed his parents in Williamsburg has died
BROOKLYN - The baby delivered after a fatal hit-and-run crash that killed his parents in Williamsburg has died, a family friend confirms.
Expectant couple Nathan and Raizy Glauber were on their way to the hospital early Sunday morning because the soon-to-be-mother was feeling ill, but the 21-year-olds were killed when their livery cab was struck by a BMW at Wilson Street and Kent Avenue. The infant was born prematurely at the hospital.
A spokesperson for the Glauber family says the baby will be laid to rest with his parents, but there will not be a funeral service.
The driver of the BMW and another passenger fled the scene on foot, and have not yet been found. Investigators traced the vehicle to Takia Walker, of The Bronx. She has been arrested for car insurance fraud, but was not involved in the crash.
The driver of the cab, 32-year-old Pedro Nunez, has been released from Bellevue Hospital and is recovering at home. He says he feels lucky to be alive, but does not remember anything from the accident.
A Jewish social services group is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the driver involved. The group urges anyone with knowledge of the suspects' whereabouts to call 917-407-6491.
