Rebecca Grossman Car Accident – Rebecca Grossman Westlake Village
Rebecca Grossman was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run crash that killed two young brothers. The incident occurred on Tuesday, September 29, 2020, at approximately 7:10 p.m., at the intersection of Triunfo Canyon Road / Saddle Mountain Drive, City of Westlake Village, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The two young brothers, 11-year-old Mark Iskander and 8-year-old Jacob Iskander, were crossing the street in a marked crosswalk with their parents and siblings on Triunfo Canyon Road in Westlake Village the evening of Sept. 29 when Grossman allegedly struck them.
She continued driving but stopped about a quarter of a mile away when her engine cut off, according to the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office. “We believe speed is a factor. Alcohol is a factor,” L.A. County sheriff’s Capt. Salvador Becerra said after the incident.
A family friend said the mother had managed to get her two youngest children, including her daughter who was in a stroller, out of the way, but couldn’t get to the older boys in time. Mark died at the scene, while his younger brother Jacob was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Grossman was arrested the night of the crash but was released on Oct. 1 after posting bond, county inmate records show. Her bail had been set at $2 million, the Sheriff’s Department said.
According to investigators, Grossman was under the influence, speeding, and took off after the crash. Her white Mercedes, which had front-end damage, was towed away about a quarter-mile from the crash scene.
West Hills Hospital released the following statement on behalf of the Grossman Burn Center: “Like our entire community, the Grossman Burn Center family at West Hills Hospital is terribly saddened by this tragedy. Our sympathies are with all who have been affected.”
