Isaac Abraham, a neighbor of Raizy Glauber’s parents, says a funeral for both is scheduled for 2 p.m.

Police say the both the driver of the vehicle that hit the couple’s car and a passenger fled and are being sought.

The Glaubers were Orthodox Jews. Jewish law calls for burial of the dead as soon as possible.
