Expectant parents die in NY crash; baby survives

NEW YORK (AP) — A young Jewish Orthodox couple en route to a New York hospital to have their first child have been killed in a car crash, but their child has survived.

Brooklyn Hasidic community activist Isaac Abraham says Nathan and Raizy Glauber were using a car service to go to the hospital early Sunday when another vehicle crashed into the side of theirs at an intersection in Williamsburg. Police say the Glaubers were pronounced dead at separate hospitals. Each was 21.

Abraham says the couple's son was delivered at the scene and was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

Police say the driver of the vehicle that hit the couple's car fled the scene.

Abraham often speaks publicly for the insulated community that is nearly closed off to modern society.
