After she plowed the boys, she fled the scene with one of the boys still stuck on her hood for 100 yards. Then she hit the brakes and the boy dislodged from the hood and that’s when she ran over him to continue fleeing from the scene.

She pulled over miles later.

She is not cooperating with police

A friend in Switzerland killed two kids while driving home from clubbing. It was raining, he'd been drinking and the kids were riding illegally (2 on a moped) on the auto route.

He received 3 years of prison. Shit happens. You Americans are cruel to each other. Rarely do you empathize or take into consideration the full picture. 3 years was more than sufficient.

[QUOTE] According to the sheriff's department, after the collision, it appears one of the boys was carried for more than a hundred feet down the road on the hood of the car. When Grossman eventually hit the brakes, they believe the boy rolled off into the street, and then Grossman ran over him, leaving the scene. She finally pulled over a mile and a half away.

I live in a residential neighborhood, but it’s full of blind corners. So I’ve trained myself to just expect to see kids in the middle of the road when I make a blind turn.

Dads are always shuffling around, staring at their phones. Then they looked all shocked when I stop my car in the middle of the road because their kid is there.

[quote] Intent is irrelevant. If you do something innately dangerous and someone dies, it's murder.

That's ridiculous, intent is everything and all that matters, no matter how punitive the legal system is. America is way closer to Cuba and North Korea in its punitive system than any other western nation. I won't even get into the bail system that basically decides that the rich can be free to fight for themselves while the poor are incarcerated to make money for the private sector.

That said, there's something to be said about drinking and driving. I personally believe drinking and driving is still an accident, because people under the influence are not in control of what they do, I don't give a fuck if people think I'm wrong. it stands to reason to me that people under the influence of anything that makes them out of it, will do inconsequential things. You can be drunk and plan to call an uber and get on a car regardless if you're too drunk.

Comparing this do sociopaths etc is just typical hyperbole of a punitive society that loves to brag as being free but its actually closed to the dictatorships it usually criticizes.

PS Spare me the whining, I don't drive so the chances I'll be running over someone while intoxicated is zero.

R125 So you think 3 years would be adequate for killing two children, while deliberately driving drunk? Ask the victims’ family how they’d feel about thar, or do they not matter? She’ll be out in a heartbeat, doing the same behavior over again. The punishment should be meaningful, inflict some kind of hardship or pain on the perpetrator and act as a deterrent. Twenty years minimum would be good, but she, and all drunk drivers, deserve more.

Contrary to what some people are insisting on this thread, the woman needs to be held accountable. This is a textbook case of willful negligence or wanton recklessness, where she caused an accident because she conducted herself in such a manner or behaved in a way that she should have known was grossly irresponsible or dangerous. The legal definition is referred to as manslaughter or negligent homicide, which means, as opposed to murder, that there was no intent or premeditation, but that the person has to be held accountable for what happened.

According to police, alcohol was involved and she was speeding. Grossman had no intent or premeditation to kill anyone, but she surely should've have realized the potential consequences of her choice to drink that day, and then get into and drive a car immediately afterwards. This is an accident that she caused that deserves lengthy punishment due to the loss of two lives, which would've never occurred had she had not been reckless. It was by no means something totally beyond her control. And, the fact that she slammed on her brakes and ran over one of the children in a panic to escape the scene is as damning as it gets.

R130 are you fucking serious? Longer sentences are a more severe punishment, a more severe punishment has a more severe affect on the criminal's life, much like her irresponsibility had in the children's lives whom she drunkenly ran over. It also keeps dangerous individuals like this woman off the streets longer. If you don't understand this basic principle or logic then you need serious psychological help.

Criminal investigation status

The first comment of the meeting was made by Lt. Joe Fender of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office, who gave a brief update to the criminal investigation stemming from the fatal crash.

The driver of the vehicle, Rebecca Grossman, 57, was arrested the night of the crash on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter, felony driving under the influence and felony hit and run, according to Fender. She posted $2 million bail and is due to be in court for a preliminary arraignment hearing on Oct. 21.

More:UPDATED: Two children killed after getting struck by car in Westlake Village; driver arrested

Grossman is the wife of Los Angeles-based plastic surgeon Dr. Peter Grossman and the daughter-in-law of Dr. A. Richard Grossman, the founder of the Grossman Burn Centers, which treat burn victims in Los Angeles, Bakersfield and Kansas City, Missouri.

Fender said sheriff deputies were working closely with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and California Highway Patrol in conducting their criminal investigation. He mentioned investigators believe both alcohol and speed were factors in the crash and that there were several eyewitnesses to the incident.

co-founder of the Grossman Burn Foundation was charged with murder and other counts for allegedly running over two young boys in Westlake Village.

Rebecca Grossman, 57, of Hidden Hills, is set to be arraigned in a Van Nuys courtroom on two felony counts each of murder and vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence, along with one felony count of hit-and-run driving resulting in death.

The crash occurred Sept. 29 on Triunfo Canyon Road in Westlake Village.

Mark Iskander, 11, and 8-year-old Jacob Iskander were crossing the street in a marked crosswalk with their parents when they were struck. Sheriff's officials said six family members were crossing the three-way intersection -- which does not have a stoplight -- when the mother heard a car speeding toward them and both parents reached out to protect two of their children.

The two boys were too far out in the intersection and were struck, the sheriff's department said. The older boy died at the scene and his 8-year-old sibling died at a hospital.

Grossman is accused of leaving the scene before she stopped about one-quarter mile from the site of the crash when her engine cut out, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

She faces up to 34 years to life in state prison, if convicted.

Grossman was arrested after the crash but was released on Oct. 1 after posting bond, according to jail records.

Grossman is the wife of Dr. Peter Grossman, who is the director of the Grossman Burn Center in West Hills and son of the center's late founder, A. Richard Grossman. Rebecca Grossman is also co-founder and chairwoman of the Grossman Burn Foundation, and the former publisher of Westlake Magazine.

My grandfather, an alcoholic with PTSD and chronic pain, accidentally killed someone (a middle-aged gent, another drunkard) while driving intoxicated. He turned himself in straight away, and got a very light sentence for manslaughter. Once free, he never drove again, refused to leave the house, and essentially drank himself morosely and quite purposely to an early death.

Then again, he was poor and had half a heart, albeit a bit of blackened bleak one. This doesn't seem to be the case, here.

I didn't miss a thing. I just know California juries love rich people. They will not convict her of murder. Most people think of murder as a premeditated act. All she needs is one person on the jury. If the judge allows the jury to convict on lesser charges, she might get convicted (of vehicular manslaughter or reckless driving). Watch this woman's lawyers to start blaming the family and blaming the police lab

I didn't say I want her to get acquitted. I think it's disgusting. But, this is what is going to happen. And it was a gift from the prosecutor's office. I don't think she will go to jail for murder. Her rich friends and business associates won't give a shit either

Causing the death of another while driving your car is a very shameful thing. It's a stigma that damages your reputation for the rest of your life. If you are at all "normal" it's also a terrible thing that might destroy your health and well-being.

Anyone who gets behind a wheel drunk in this age knows exactly what they are doing. It's a very damaged alcoholic who continues to drive even after one DUI or accident caused while intoxicated.

Grossman's life is hell now. If not imprisoned until old age, she will forever be marked with the abhorrent recklessness that cost two children their lives. If I had done what she did I would be in absolute agony.

I can't imagine the grief of the surviving parents and children after that tragic experience.

I knew a man who liked to speed, was passing a slower driver, and killed a teenager in the process. When I learned that about him I was disgusted. He was not a bad man, quite amiable in fact, but to act so irresponsibly while driving just to get somewhere quicker is a true failing of decency. His life did not end well, though. He had a stroke and was paralyzed by it, living six years in pain and discomfort. An odd sort of justice in a way.

I hate that the article refers to it as a tragic accident. It's not a fucking accident if the driver is drunk and speeding. Call it reckless hit and run which accurately describes what actually happened. Or a car crash against pedestrians.

Update:

Hidden Hills resident Rebecca Grossman, accused of running over and killing two Westlake Village children while allegedly street racing, showed up in court Wednesday to get a date for a preliminary hearing. However, her attorney was seriously ill and unable to continue so the judge agreed to postpone the case once again, but said, “It’s been a year and two months since it happened. The victims’ family needs this case to go forward. Two counts of murder will take a while to get a preliminary hearing but not this long.” He urged Grossman to find a new attorney who will treat the case as a priority and will be prepared for a preliminary hearing no later than March 2022. Grossman was charged with two counts of murder, two counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and one count of hit-and-run driving resulting in death for the September 2020 crash that killed Mark and Jacob Iskander in a Westlake Village crosswalk. She has been free for the last year on $2 million bail.

Thank you so much for the update. I've been following this case due to its sheer horror but also because a family member and I share the same employer but I'm in a different location and do not know them personally. Shortly after it happened, I discussed it with another colleague at that site who said that this rich bitch had gotten off previous DUI's by lawyering up heavily, but that hasn't made it into the news. She's still doing it. Republicunt.

Article from R239 is so horribly sad. Those poor parents seeing their boys die like that. The father ran to the one dragged down the road and tried to perform mouth-to-mouth but he died at the scene.

Horrible. Shows how life can change in an instant. They were going for an early evening walk as a family, went to a crosswalk and looked both ways and boom - two of the kids dead.

Very scary.

Please keep us posted about this if you have any updates. Beyond dreadful. This bitch should rot in jail. The PR firm who frames this as "tragic accident" should be sued as well.

It's terrible...one thing to hit someone, but you stop. You hear of a lot of hit and runs on the news every day. She must have seen the boy she hit on the hood of her car, but slams on the brakes to get him off, then runs over him again. Fucking stone cold and heartless. She made sure he was dead. Her privilege will probably give her a slap on the wrist..expensive lawyers. She deserves prison time.

There should be a GoFundMe to take out a hit on her. She needs to be wacked.

Whoever bumped this thread, thank you. I totally forgot about this whore and her misdeeds should never be forgotten. As a few others above have said, I don't think there is a chance this will be a slap-on -the-wrist resolution. I do think the murder charge is a stretch though. But her recklessness is without doubt criminal. I know a few people like Grossman and they really are disgusting trash who have no business being on this earth, despite their "accomplishments." R251, I have long thought there needs to he a group of wealthy do-gooders who can infiltrate the parts of society where these people exist so they can be discreetly assassinated. I really want some rich-bitch SJW to poison this Grossman's vodka red bull. If I had the money, I would organize it, kind of like a posher, sexier version of Dexter.

In other countries she'd already have been tried and punished. Within months of the incident. Death penalty.

But in America? Rich and white? Not even a trial for years. Then a fine, probation, and required AA meetings.

Only the best countries have the death penalty-- Iran, Saudi Arabia, China, Pakistan, Israel, and Sudan. THEY understand American values! Maybe we should send a congressional fact-finding mission to Saudi Arabia so we can learn how to speedily implement the death penalty.

The preliminary hearing is scheduled a full year and a half after the hit and run. Well, small miracles.

Is her husband standing by her? She was out drinking with her boyfriend. Does she have money of her own or will she rely on his wealth for her defense?

by Anonymousreply 264January 8, 2022 8:28 AM

The accident was hitting the two boys. The unforgivable crime was to keep driving, brake, then drive over the kid (which is probably what killed him).

I'd put a bullet in her myself if I could. If i were a family member, I'd get a loud speaker and every once in a while, drive up to their house and read the details of the police report for a few minutes so that she and her neighbors could hear, over and over, what she did.

We can rest easy. She has her water and her rose gold (barf) iPhone in her clutches. She'll get off with likely a ton of community service which she will fan off and no one will care.

Compare what happened (or didn't happen) to this bitch to Ghislane Maxwell, who couldn't even get bail and spent over a year in jail just waiting for her trial. And none of her victims died.

Just sayin'.

"A friend in Switzerland killed two kids while driving home from clubbing. It was raining, he'd been drinking and the kids were riding illegally (2 on a moped) on the auto route.

He received 3 years of prison. Shit happens."

"Shit happens" is when a deer runs into the road, sober driver swerves to avoid deer, and hits another car.

Asshole who deserves very long prison sentence is when a friend in Switzerland drives home drunk in the rain and kills two people.

But the Swiss were the bankers for the Nazis, so what else would you expect.

Ok first I'll offer my condolences to the parents. It's got to be horrific to watch that socialite just mow down two kids.

Second Rebecca Grossman is going to prison for this one. Mark my words. That said it figures she mowed them down in a Mercedes Benz. I've noted the more egregious behavior on the roadways to be committed by the owners of various models of Mercedes Benz..

The people defending shitty murdering drivers and attacking pedestrians in this thread are sick. Just like the horrible people who were attacking bicyclists in other threads where they were murdered/severely injured by some shit for brains driver. Fuck drivers.
