PICTURED: Six people were killed when a Mercedes crashed at a LA intersection while traveling at 100 mph.
An ICU nurse was detained after she allegedly drove through a red light while intoxicated and arguing with her partner, killing three other people in the process as well as a pregnant woman, her boyfriend, and their infant son.
Nicole L. Linton, 37, a Texas-born nurse employed in Los Angeles, was detained for vehicular manslaughter after it was reported by police that she crashed her car into five other vehicles while traveling at speeds of up to 100 mph near an intersection in Windsor Hills.
Following the horrific accident, Asherey Ryan, 23, who was eight months pregnant, her one-year-old son Alonzo Luchiano Quintero, and her unborn son were all declared dead at the scene.
Those close to the family confirmed that Renald, the father of the unborn child, died in the collision as well after the car split in half immediately on impact.
When the ‘drunk’ driver crashed into the car Asherey, Renald, and little Alonzo were traveling in, they were en route to a doctor’s appointment for a pregnancy check-up.
After the collision, Linton was captured in a picture by crash witness Tabia Johnson sitting down on a nearby sidewalk with the burning wreckage in the background.
Linton appeared to have only sustained minor wounds, including bleeding close to the head, according to Johnson, who criticized the woman’s driving.
Linton is helping the authorities look into her bloodwork to determine whether she was under the influence when the fatal collision occurred.
The LA Times reports that Linton will be charged formally on Monday by the district attorney of Los Angeles County after being released from the hospital and booked.
Just feet away from rows of highly flammable pumping stations, cars were sent screeching across the street and burst into flames before finally coming to a stop in a mangled wreck.
Linton, the speeding driver, was allegedly a friend of the woman who claimed she was “drunk” and “fighting with her boyfriend” when she got in her car and slammed into a traffic jam.
Between South La Brea Avenue and Slauson Avenue, a heartbreaking fatal pileup occurred on Thursday afternoon.
After the catastrophic collision at 1:40 PM, eight people are still in critical condition with terrible injuries.
Six of the injured people were minors, and one had serious wounds.
One of those hospitalized with injuries is the driver.
Asherey Ryan’s death was confirmed and reported by the LA County Medical Examiner-Coroner, along with the unborn “Baby Boy Ryan.”
Asherey, who is thought to have…, has received a deluge of condolences.
