Many members of Honolulu's theater community are stunned by the tragedy that killed the 4-year old daughter of Ruthie Ann Miles, a Tony Award Winning Performer from Kaimuki.

The Daily News reported that the four, along with a man who was also injured, were struck about 12:40 Ninth Street and Fifth Avenue. A fifth victim, a 46-year-old man, was also hit by the vehicle.

Blumenstein won a featured actress Tony in 2015 for her role as Lady Thiang in a revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The King and I", opposite Kelli O'Hara and Ken Watanabe.

The 34-year-old Broadway star - who is now pregnant with her second child - is said to be in critical condition via a fundraiser page setup in her honor by Fiasco Theater Company manager Jack Stephens.

A GoFundMe page set up to raise an emergency fund for Miles had received more than US$250,000 (RM975,300) from almost 5,000 people in 15 hours. She claims to have suffered a seizure while driving and reportedly doesn't remember anything. When she accepted the prestigious award, she thanked many people, apparently including the Lew family. Blumenstein, who is pregnant, was walking with friend Lauren Lew, who had 1-year-old Joshua in a stroller. Sources told the New York Post that Bruns was let go from police custody. Miles' four-year-old daughter, Abigail Blumenstein, was killed in the accident.

"I don't want her to just say that, I had a medical emergency that conveniently happened between that intersection and right here", a witness who wished not to be identified told PIX11.

At first, the driver tried to speed away, dragging the stroller that the boy was being pushed in behind her for half a block, until she crashed into some parked cars on the opposite side of the street and came to a stop. Tell me this isn't happening! The actress, whose husband is Jonathan Blumenstein, had a recurring role on the acclaimed FX drama as Young-Hee Seong in 2016.

"They had to cut her coat off", Finnegan said.

"For Chirlane and I obviously this is very personal".

"When they took her out she was just standing there, like nothing", Muñiz told the New York Daily News. 'This loss of life is tragic and painful for all of us, especially parents'.
