    Around 1,000 members of Brooklyn’s strictly Orthodox community turned out this week for the funerals of Nachman and Raizy Glauber and their newborn child, who were killed in a car crash last weekend.

    The newlywed couple, both aged 21, had been travelling to hospital for a check-up on Mrs Glauber when their taxi collided with another car.

    Their baby boy initially survived the accident and was delivered by Caesarean weighing just 4lb, but died shortly afterwards of extreme prematurity, the city medical examiner’s office said.

    According to reports, a family member said that the couple had sought urgent medical attention after Mrs Glauber, who was 24 weeks’ pregnant, said she could no longer feel her baby.

    The condition of the taxi driver, Pedro Nuñez Delacruz, 32, was said to be stable.

    The driver the other car involved in the crash, who fled the scene on impact, has been identified by police as Julio Acevedo.

    According to the Washington Post, Acevedo was arrested last month on a charge of driving while under the influence, and served around a decade in prison in the 1990s for manslaughter after he was convicted of shooting Kelvin Martin, a Brooklyn criminal.

    Mrs Glauber reportedly worked in a hardware distribution shop and came from a rabbinical family. Mr Glauber’s family founded the G&G chain that supplies specialised clothing for the Orthodox community.
