Rebecca Grossman was found guilty of the deaths of 2 children who were crossing a street in Los Angeles

Rebecca Grossman, co-founder of the Grossman Burn Foundation, has been found guilty of second-degree murder and other crimes following a tragic car crash in Westlake Village in 2020 that claimed the lives of two siblings. The jury deliberated for approximately nine hours before reaching their verdict on the second day of deliberations.

The incident took place on September 29, 2020, when Grossman hit 11-year-old Mark Iskander and his 8-year-old brother Jacob with her car as they were crossing a pedestrian crossing with their family. Prosecutors stated that Grossman was traveling at more than 70 mph on a street with a 45 mph speed limit at the time of the accident. After the collision, Grossman allegedly continued driving until her car’s engine failed, about a quarter-mile away from the scene.

Despite the defense’s argument that Grossman’s then-boyfriend, former Dodger player Scott Erickson, was responsible for the tragic incident, the jury rejected this claim. Grossman, 60, was found guilty of two counts of second-degree murder, two counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence, and one count of hit-and-run resulting in death.

Grossman’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for April 10, where she could face up to 34 years in prison or life in state prison. Throughout the trial, Grossman remained free on $2 million bail. The tragic case has deeply impacted the community and highlighted the importance of road safety and responsible driving.
