Parents Killed, Infant Survives; NYC Police Still Searching For Hit And Run Driver

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police are still looking for the driver of a BMW and a passenger who witnesses say slammed into a car carrying a young pregnant woman and her husband and then fled the scene.
    
The couple, Nachman and Raizy Glauber, died in the crash but their baby boy was delivered alive. A neighbor of Raizy Glauber's parents says the infant is in serious condition.
    
Authorities say the woman was feeling ill and was headed to the hospital with her husband early Sunday when the car they were riding in was hit at an intersection in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
    
The Glaubers were married about a year ago and had begun a life together in Williamsburg, where Raizy Glauber grew up in a prominent Orthodox Jewish rabbinical family.
    
Raised north of New York City in Monsey, N.Y., Nachman Glauber was studying at a rabbinical college nearby.
    
Jewish law calls for burial of the dead as soon as possible, and hours after their deaths, the Glaubers were mourned at a funeral Sunday afternoon.
    
Afterward, the cars carrying the bodies left and headed to Monsey, N.Y., where another service was planned in Nachman Glauber's hometown.
