Authorities say a woman who lost control of her vehicle and fatally struck two toddlers in a Brooklyn crosswalk has died of an apparent suicide.
An NYPD spokesperson confirmed to ET that police were called to Bruns' Staten Island home for a wellness check after a friend said she hadn't heard from her.
Local media reports said Burns was found Wednesday near bottles of prescription pills and what may be a suicide note, however, police would not confirm those details.
When the crash occurred in March, Bruns had allegedly been driving her auto westbound on 9th street when she allegedly ran a red light and struck a group of pedestrians, including Miles, Lew, and their children.More news: Georgia High School Marching Band Spells Out Racial Slur During Halftime Show
The charges included manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment, assault and reckless driving.
A driver who faced 15 years in jail for killing two young children and an unborn baby has taken her own life, police say.
Prosecutors say doctors had told Bruns not to drive after she had a previous medical episode while behind the wheel.
Bruns was freed on $75,000 bond in September. Abigail died and her mother, who was 39 weeks pregnant at the time, was injured.More news: RUMOR: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Icons on PS4 Servers Suggest Imminent Game Awards Announcement
