On Saturday, two days before the accident, Miles tweeted thanks to Apple Support for helping her recover 3,500 lost photos and videos, mainly of her baby daughter.

Ruthie Ann Blumenstein, who goes by the stage name Ruthie Ann Miles, was injured in the collision Monday in the Park Slope neighborhood.

Witnesses told local media outlets that the carnage was like something out of a horror movie, with one of the children's strollers dragged more than 350 feet. Lauren Lew was also injured in the accident; her one-year-old son Joshua Lew was killed.

Since winning the Tony, she starred alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford in "Sunday in the Park With George" last spring and appeared in "Chess", a rock opera at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., just last month. Friends and members of the Broadway community including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Platt and Kristin Chenoweth have rallied with an overwhelming outpouring of love, many linking to a GoFundMe page for Miles' family, which has already raised around $93,000. Tell me this isn't happening.

Police said the driver, of NY, had a "medical episode" at the time of the collision and attempted to flee the scene but crashed into several cars and was stopped by witnesses. She moved to New York City in 2005 to attend graduate school, according to her biography on her website.

NBC initially reported that Blumenstein, who was said to be pregnant, was in "critical condition" Monday, but a later report from the New York Daily News said she was in stable condition as of Tuesday morning.

Well-wishes, prayers, and donations are coming in from around the world for a Tony Award-winning actress who was hit by a vehicle.

NYC mayor Bill de Blasio announced that there will be a full investigation into the fatal crash.

Miles is best known for winning the 2015 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her performance as Lady Thiang in The King and I, and also had a recurring guest role on The Americans. "They had to cut her coat off", bystander Leah Finnegan told the New York Post. "I said, 'Are you the mom, ' and she said, 'Yeah.' ..."

Her teachers say she's pregnant with her second child. "But I will state the obvious".

The driver hasn't been charged; police are looking into her medical history and driving record.

"This loss of life is tragic and painful for all of us, particularly all of us who are parents", he said.
