Having a condition which may cause seizures can cause you to lose your license for a period of time. Laws vary from state to state on how long you may have to have your license denied and whether or not a doctor has to report a diagnosis of a medical condition that may cause seizures. In the state of Georgia, a person diagnosed with epilepsy may return to driving after a seizure-free period of six months. Compared with New York where doctors are not required to report conditions but the suspension of a license may last up to one year. Deadline reports on a crash that injured a Broadway star and killed two children in New York.
The Tony-award winning actress Ruthie Ann Miles of “The King and I” was seriously injured in a Brooklyn car accident. The same accident also killed Miles’ four-year-old daughter.
It is believed that the driver had a seizure and lost control of the vehicle, running a red light.
Miles was pregnant at the time of the accident and her unborn child survived. Miles was taken to New York Methodist Hospital.
The driver struck five people total. Along with Miles’ child, another one-year-old boy was killed in the accident. His mother was also injured along with a 46-year-old man.
The driver of the vehicle stopped after crashing into several parked cars. She did not attempt to flee the scene of the accident.
In addition to “The King and I,” Miles also appeared in the popular 80’s musical “Chess” and “Sunday in the Park with George” which also starred Jake Gyllenhaal.
