The Grossman Burn Foundation co-founder allegedly sped through a crosswalk before striking the children, who were walking with their family. Investigators say they believe she was racing another driver when it happened.

She was arrested by sheriff’s deputies after his white Mercedes, which had damage to the front end, stopped a quarter-mile from the scene of the accident because its engine failed, according to prosecutors.

Following a preliminary hearing earlier this month, Grossman was ordered to stand trial on two felony counts, each of murder and grossly negligent vehicular manslaughter, as well as one felony hit-and-run resulting in death. She faces a maximum of 34 years to life in prison if she is convicted of the charges.
