#On the night of #Sept. 29, #Mark and #Jacob #Iskander, ages 11 and 8, were in a crosswalk at the intersection of #Triunfo #Canyon #Road and #Saddle #Mountain #Drive when they were struck and killed by a speeding #Mercedes while on a walk with their family.

L.A. #County #Sheriff’s investigators say the driver, #Grossman, sped away.

#Her white #Mercedes, which had front-end damage, came to a stop about a quarter-mile from the crash scene after its engine broke down, prosecutors allege.

#Grossman is a co-founder and chair of the #Grossman #Burn #Foundation, the wife of the foundation’s president. #She has received awards and acclaim for her philanthropy around the world.

The sheriff’s department told CBS #Los #Angeles #Monday that the drunken driving portion of the case remains under investigation and investigators are still waiting on toxicology results. #She could face further charges once those results come in.
