Pregnant woman and husband killed in early morning crash in Williamsburg — but baby is saved through emergency C-section

A hit-and-run BMW driver killed two young Brooklyn parents on their way to a hospital to have their first child early Sunday – but the baby miraculously survived.

Nachman and Raizel Glauber, both 21, were rushing to Long Island College Hospital in Cobble Hill because Glauber, seven months pregnant, was experiencing pains, according to cops and relatives.

“They were excited to start a family,” said Sarah Gluck, Nachman’s cousin. “They were always glowing.”

The couple was riding in the back of a black 2008 Toyota Camry livery cab heading west on Wilson St. when a gray 2010 BMW sedan speeding north on Kent Ave. slammed into the cab at the Williamsburg intersection about 12:30 a.m., cops said.

It was unclear if the livery cab braked for the stop sign at the intersection. The BMW driver had no stop sign on Kent Ave.

The impact from the T-bone collision sent the livery cab spinning onto the median and ejected the pregnant Glauber into the street, her body coming to rest under a parked tractor trailer.
