BDE: Tragedy Claims Lives Of Expectant Parents In Brooklyn (Video)

An Orthodox Jewish couple was killed in a car crash early today as they were headed to the hospital to deliver their first child, but their child survived, authorities said.

Husband and wife Nathan and Raizy Glauber, both 21 years old, were headed to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, said Vos Iz Neias, a news blog that covers the Orthodox community.

Their car slammed into a tractor-trailer, and a man driving a BMW fled the scene on foot, the blog said.

The couple’s son was delivered at the scene and was taken to a hospital in serious condition, said community activist Isaac Abraham.

Nathan Glauber was pronounced dead at Beth Israel Hospital, while his wife died at Bellevue, police said.

Three cars were involved in the crash shortly after midnight near the intersection of Kent Avenue and Wilson Street.

At least two other people were injured, police said.

Abraham called the couple’s death “a tragedy beyond (belief) just coming off a joyous holiday as Purim” as they were getting ready to welcome their first child.

The crash was still under investigation early today, and police were not sure of its cause.

Meanwhile, a man was killed in another crash shortly after midnight on Atlantic Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The man was dead at the scene after his car slammed into a Long Island Rail Road support column.

It was unclear if other passengers were injured in that crash.
