BROOKLYN - Community leaders in The Bronx came together today to call for action after a fatal crash on the corner of Kent and Wilson streets early Sunday.

The hit-and-run crash killed Nathan and Raizy Glauber, a young Hasidic couple, as well as their unborn baby.

Local politicians and leaders of the Orthodox Jewish community gathered an additional $15,000 in reward money for information that would lead police to an arrest in the hit-and-run case. They are also asking the Department of Transportation to install a traffic light at the corner of Kent Avenue.

The NYPD has identified the suspect sought in the deaths of the Brooklyn couple as Julio Acevedo. Officials say that just last week, Acevedo was charged with driving while intoxicated. He's also been convicted of manslaughter in Brooklyn and a robbery in The Bronx, along with other charges.

The Glaubers were on their way to the hospital early Sunday morning because the soon-to-be-mother was feeling ill. The 21-year-olds were killed when their livery cab was struck by a BMW in Williamsburg. Their baby boy was delivered prematurely at the hospital, but died early this morning.

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 fled the scene on foot. Investigators traced the vehicle to Takia Walker of The Bronx, who has been arrested for car insurance fraud, but is not believed to have been involved in the crash.
