The family of Ruthie Ann Miles, the pregnant Broadway star who lost her daughter and was severely injured in the wreck, revealed Thursday that the unborn child escaped unscathed.

A representative for Gov. Andrew Cuomo said they "will of course review any potential legislative remedies" in the wake of the "terrible tragedy", but according to current law, "violations of local red light and speed camera programs are administered by the City of NY and not reported to the DMV".

Along with her large donation, Holmes took to social media to offer her prayers to Miles and her family, sharing a photo of Miles performing and writing "So many prayers and blessings to Ruthie Ann Miles and her family".

"Ruthie, I am sending you all the love and light in my heart today sweet lady", wrote McDonald, a six-time Tony victor.

A GoFundMe set up for Miles has raised almost $400,000. "She is always kind and always has a smile. It is our honor to help her during this hard time".

Bruns, whose license plate had been cited 12 times in the past two years for traffic violations that include four instances of running red lights and four for speeding in school zones, told first responders she had a medical condition and suffered a seizure, which caused her to accelerate through the red light. She suffered minor injuries in the accident and was transported to a local hospital.
