NEW YORK CITY (HawaiiNewsNow) - The driver charged in the death of a Hawaii actress’ daughter and another toddler died in an apparent suicide, New York authorities said.
According to NBC News, 44-year-old Dorothy Bruns was found in her home with pills and a note.
The note said, “I don’t want to live like this anymore.”
In March, Ruthie Ann Miles was walking with her friend and their two young children. That’s when Bruns reportedly suffered a seizure, causing her to strike and kill Miles’ 4-year-old daughter Abigail.
Her friend’s 1-year-old son also died.
Miles was pregnant at the time and had to be hospitalized for her injuries as well.
She later lost her unborn daughter.
Bruns was arrested and charged with manslaughter, negligent homicide and other crimes related to the incident. She faced 15 years in jail for the crash.
