Expectant Parents Killed on Way to LICH ; UPDATE: Baby Dies, Cops Hunt for Julio Acevedo

Kent Ave. and Wilson St. Google Maps
Tragedy struck a young Hasidic couple on their way to Long Island College Hospital (LICH) in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn early Sunday morning.

A hit-and-run BMW driver traveling 60 mph on a 30 mph stretch smashed into the back of their cab, killing both parents. While doctors delivered the baby by emergency C-section (and initially thought it would survive), sadly, the baby died as well.

Nachman and Raizel Glauber, both 21, died on Wilson St. at Kent Ave. The driver and passenger of the BMW fled on foot.

The Brooklyn Eagle reports that the Glaubers were mourned by at least 1,000 people at a funeral outside the Congregation Yetev Lev D'Satmar synagogue.

More at the Daily News and CNN.

UPDATE:Police are searching for ex-con Julio Acevedo, arrested on drunken-driving charges about two weeks ago. According to the NY Daily News, Acevedo has a long rap sheet, including an eight-year stretch in prison for shooting a man to death in Brooklyn in 1987.

A reward is offered for his capture.
