NEW YORK — 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.

Police say the driver of the BMW slammed into the car carrying Nachman (NAHK’-muhn) and Raizy Glauber (RAY’-zee GLOW’-bur) 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.
