New York -  A baby delivered after his parents were killed in a Brooklyn hit-and-run accident died early Monday, a community spokesman said.

Isaac Abraham, who serves as a spokesman for the family’s Orthodox Jewish community, said the child died around 5:30 a.m.

Police were searching for the driver of a BMW and a passenger who fled on foot after slamming into a livery cab, killing the young pregnant woman and her husband.

“This guy’s a coward and he should pay his price,” said Abraham, adding that the community wants a homicide prosecution.

Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21, were looking forward to welcoming their first child into their tight-knit community of Orthodox Jews.

The horrific crash happened in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn as the couple headed to a hospital.

The funeral for the baby will be Monday in Kiryas Joel. The baby’s parents were laid to rest in a cemetary in Kiryas Joel yesterday.

You know, I had been taking a break from the computer these past few months - there's too many reasons why to count - but this story has brought me back here to VIN.

I am outraged that this young couple & now their baby are gone from this world! It would be a tragedy in itself regardless, but it just makes it even worse that the coward who hit them has fled the scene & refuses to show his face to take responsibility for what he's done! The family deserves closure & peace. I hope when they find him, they prosecute the man to the fullest extent of the law! I mean throw the book at him! Especially because he ran away like a coward, rather than facing the young couple's families & saying sorry, like he should have!

As for the Jewish community devestated by the loss of those young folks & their baby...my deepest condolences to You all, as I know You feel the pain of this as One Entity.

May HaShem bring Justice, but also Healing, to everyone involved in this horrible incident. My family & I love You all, and We pray for your Nation continiously.

G-d bless,
Sherry

B'DhE....please no more blaming the parents for not being machmir on hilchos tzinius or the landlord for charging them high rents or any of 1001 possible reasons why this happened. It was a tragedy and the Ebeshter does not communicate directly to ANY of us and provide his rationale for any single incident. We should go on and live our lives as we believe the torah directs and not mindlessly follow the chumrah of the day or the most recent directive from some rabbonim who publish a letter about some alleged threat to yiddeshkeit. May the niftar be a maylitz yosher to klal yisroel.

My dear friend, you are right as always. People, listen up. She knows from where she speaks. It's time for true achdus & ahava. Nobody else should suffer from such tragedies, it's time we come together to grieve and then make positive changes in ourselves, each one doing what he/she needs to do. No blanket statements, no finger pointing, except into our own hearts.

BDE! Oh, and thus 'Lukui beKaflayim'!
David:true, true...the very concept of 'pinning any blames' is an act from the Satan, i.e. blaming the "other" while white-washing yourself)every individual knows on his own wherein his weaknesses are, everyone should just take a minute to account his OWN 'Cheshbon haNefesh' and he will see, there is so much each and everyone of us, could do TeShuvah on, repent and be meKabel resolutions. A tragedy like this, by default, requires T'shuvah, as per Halacha in Rambam Hilchot Teshuva!

why should we Resist the temptation to post "the reason" as to why this happened? after all we are not looking forward to another tragedy c"v, so in-order to be spared we have to do Teshuva correcting our faults so we could all use some heart warming suggestion form another fellow Yid.

I hear your rage, and I can perhaps understand it, given the enormity of the tragedy.
I also strongly believe that none of us can really know why G-d brings such suffering, and it is very insensitive to try to blame it on XYor Z.
However, I just want to point out, you feel righteous indignation and believe driver should be punished to the Max.
At the same time there are quiet a number of molestation victims from Williamsburg, wishing to have the community share in their righteous indignation of wanting to see their perpetrator brought to justice.
At best, all they get mussar shmussen how it somehow isn't Jewish to want "revenge."
though this driver was reckless and should be held responsible for his actions, still doesn't begin to compare with the vicious premeditated molesters who Williamsburg supports.
