A former magazine publisher and founder of the Grossman Burn Foundation has been arrested after two young brothers were killed in a horrific car crash.

Rebecca Grossman, 57, was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and DUI after allegedly smashing her speeding Mercedes into the young boys in Westlake Village, Los Angeles County. 

One of the victims, aged 11, died at the scene while his younger brother, aged nine, died in hospital a few hours later.

Investigators said one boy was carried 100ft on the hood of the car before she braked, at which point he fell off the car and she ran him over again while fleeing the scene.
