A community spokesman says a baby delivered after his parents were killed in a Brooklyn hit-and-run accident has died.

Isaac Abraham says the child died around 5:30 a.m. Monday. He serves as a spokesman for the family's Orthodox Jewish community.

Police are searching for the driver of a BMW and a passenger who fled the scene of the accident early Sunday.

The pregnant woman wasn't feeling well and was enroute to a hospital with her husband.

Police say the driver of the BMW slammed into the car carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber at a Williamsburg intersection.

Their fellow Orthodox Jews gathered on the street Sunday afternoon for their funerals. Afterward, the cars carrying the bodies headed to another service in Monsey, N.Y., where Nachman Glauber grew up.

Witnesses say a pregnant woman who was killed in a hit and run with her husband while they were headed to the hospital was thrown from the car and her body landed under a parked tractor-trailer.

Authorities say Nachman Glauber and Raizy Glauber, both 21, were pronounced dead at hospitals after a BMW slammed into the car they were riding in Sunday in Brooklyn. The medical examiner says both died of blunt-force trauma.

Police say their baby boy was delivered prematurely at a hospital.

Isaac Abraham, a community leader in the neighborhood, had said earlier Sunday that the couple was going to the hospital for the child's birth, but he later said it wasn't clear why the Glaubers were headed there. Police would only say the trip was related to Raizy Glauber's pregnancy.
