The driver who ran a red light and killed two young children crossing the street with their mothers was found dead in her Staten Island apartment on Tuesday.

Local media reports said Burns was found Wednesday near bottles of prescription pills and what may be a suicide note, however, police would not confirm those details.

Bruns was ultimately hit with a 10-count indictment on charges of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment, assault, and reckless driving related to the crash.

One of the mothers is Broadway actress Ruthy Ann Miles, whose unborn baby later died. She had been due back in court November 20.

Bruns was freed on $75,000 bond in September. Her auto drove forward, killing Ruthie Ann Blumenstein's 4-year-old daughter and the 1-year-old son of another parent. She lost her unborn baby.

The killer also told cops afterwards that she had been suffering from the effects of multiple sclerosis.

Horrifying video captured at the scene shows the white vehicle rolling into the crosswalk as the unsuspecting pedestrians are struck.

She returned in February when she was given medical clearance, according to a source familiar with the situation. And in September 2017, she struck a pedestrian in Long Island City, after which the NYPD reportedly failed to investigate the incident. A background check of her driving shows she had about a dozen traffic violations against her since 2016, including speeding and running red lights. Bruns came up negative for possible drug or alcohol traces.
