Bruns was driving a white Volvo sped through the intersection at 9th Street and Fifth Avenue in Park Slope hitting the kids and trying to speed away. She dragged the stroller that the boy was being pushed in behind her for half a block, until she crashed into some parked cars on the opposite side of the street and came to a stop according to witnesses. When she got out of the car she had no emotion.
