NEW YORK - A New York City man who fled a hit-and-run car crash that killed a young Orthodox Jewish family is expected to appear before a judge on Thursday night.

Julio Acevedo, 44, of Brooklyn, faces one count of vehicular manslaughter, three counts of leaving the scene of an accident and three counts of criminally negligent homicide for the hit-and-run on Sunday morning, police said.

He is due to appear in a Brooklyn court.

The victims, Raizy and Nachman Glauber, 21, were members of an Orthodox Jewish enclave in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They were expecting their first child.

They were on the way to the hospital when their taxi was hit broadside by a gray BMW sedan, police said. The BMW driver fled the scene on foot.

The Glauber baby was delivered on Sunday by Cesarean section at Bellevue Hospital, where the mother had been pronounced dead on arrival, police said. The boy died early on Monday.
