Two brothers, ages 9 and 11, are dead in a horrific car crash that may have involved drinking and street racing. The suspect's family started one of Southern California's best-known burn centers.

Authorities announced Wednesday that the second victim, who was struck while crossing a street in Westlake Village, died hours after the crash, which investigators believe may have been connected to street racing.

The suspect was identified as 57-year-old Rebecca Grossman, who has familial ties to the founder of the Grossman Burn Center. Grossman is the chairwoman of the Grossman Burn Foundation.

The pedestrians, who were only identified as male juveniles, were struck in the area of Triunfo Canyon Road and Saddle Mountain Drive at about 7:10 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. One of the victims died at the scene, while the other boy was transported to a hospital, where he later died.
...
The two children were killed right in front of their parents and siblings.

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
.

What I've heard is that her Benz shut down automatically once the software recognized that it had been in a colllision. She was allegedly street-racing with a former baseball player. She was driving at over 80mph in a 45mph zone and was doing over 70 when she hit the kids.

This is what having a lot of money gets you: Getting out of jail on $2 million bail. Fighting at a preliminary hearing as to whether the charges are justified over eighteen months after running down two kids, after not showing up for a series of earlier hearings. If the person who had run down those kids was some nineteen-year-old working-class kid street-racing with an old hopped-up Honda, he would have been sent up the river over a year ago.
