A woman who lost control of her auto in a crash that killed the toddler and unborn child of a pregnant Broadway actress has died in an apparent suicide.

Dorothy Bruns, 44, was found dead in her Staten Island home by a friend on Tuesday afternoon.

Sources say bottles of prescription pills were found nearby along with an apparent suicide note.

On March 5, Bruns was behind the wheel of her vehicle when she fatally hit two children in a Brooklyn crosswalk and caused a woman to lose her unborn child. Her auto drove forward, killing the 4-year-old daughter of Broadway actress Ruthie Ann Blumenstein and the 1-year-old son of another parent. Two months after the crash, Miles and her husband, Jonathan Blumenstein, suffered more heartbreak when they lost their unborn baby.

The girl's mother is Tony Award-winning actress Ruthie Ann Miles. Abigail died and her mother, who was 39 weeks pregnant at the time, was injured.

Bruns had been facing a slew of charges, including criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment and assault, all stemming from the crash, according to the New York Daily News.

Prosecutors said a doctor had told Bruns to not drive, and her driving record revealed several past violations, including speeding and running red lights.

Miles took home a Tony award in 2015 for best featured actress for her performance in "The King And I". Right, Lauren Lew is seen with her son 1-year-old Joshua. She was pronounced dead on the scene by emergency medical responders.

In September 2017, Bruns struck a pedestrian in Long Island City, Queens.
