A speeding driver who crashed into a hired car taking expectant parents to a New York City hospital has been convicted in the deaths of the couple and their baby, who was delivered alive after the wreck but didn't survive.

Julio Acevedo (ah-seh-VAY'-doh) was found guilty Thursday of two counts of second-degree manslaughter and one count of criminally negligent homicide.

The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/1zslsgi ) reports that he could face up to life in prison.

Prosecutors estimate Acevedo was going 70 mph — more than twice the legal speed limit — when he smashed into a livery car in March 2013. The crash killed Nachman (NAHK'-muhn) and Raizy Glauber (RAY'-zee GLOW'-bur). Their newborn son died the next day.

Acevedo was later arrested in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
