He said of the father: "He was a very good student .<!p>.<!p>. they were a very happy couple."
The Glaubers' livery cab driver, Pedro Nunez Delacruz, 32, was treated for minor injuries at the hospital and was later released. Delacruz had a current driver's license.
But an application to use the Toyota as a livery cab was pending and the vehicle should not have been sent to pick up the passengers, according to the city's Taxi and Limousine Commission. Delacruz's union said he had done nothing wrong. In New York City, yellow taxis are hailed on the street, but residents may call car services, and are picked up by drivers in everyday vehicles.
Meanwhile, police said the registered owner of the BMW, Takia Walker, 29 who was not in the car, was charged with insurance fraud on Sunday in a scam involving the car.
A person familiar with the investigation said Walker bought the car legally -- or willingly used her identification for the purchase -- then gave the car to another man. The middleman wasn't driving at the time of the accident, and had either lent or rented the car out to the driver, the person said. The person was not authorized to speak publicly about the accident and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
Acevedo served about eight years in prison on a manslaughter charge in a shooting death, and violated parole once after, according to a state department of correction spokeswoman.
No one answered the door Monday at either Walker's or Acevedo's homes.
On Saturday, Raizy Glauber "was not feeling well, so they decided to go" to the hospital, said Sara Glauber, Nachman Glauber's cousin. Abraham said the Glaubers called a car service because they didn't own a car, which is common for New Yorkers.
The Glaubers were married about a year ago and had begun a life together in Williamsburg, where Raizy Glauber grew up in a prominent Orthodox Jewish rabbinical family, Sara Glauber said.
Raised north of New York City in Monsey, N.Y., and part of a family that founded a line of clothing for Orthodox Jews, Nachman Glauber was studying at a rabbinical college nearby, said his cousin.
Brooklyn is home to the largest community of ultra-Orthodox Jews outside Israel, more than 250,000. The community has strict rules governing clothing, social customs and interaction with the outside world. Men wear dark clothing that includes a long coat and a fedora-type hat and often have long beards and ear locks.
Jewish law calls for burial of the dead as soon as possible, and hours after their deaths, the Glaubers were mourned by at least 1,000 people at a funeral outside the Congregation Yetev Lev D'Satmar synagogue.
Afterward, the cars carrying the bodies left and headed to Monsey, where another service was planned in Nachman Glauber's hometown.
