Fatal Los Angeles Car Accident
A traveling nurse has been arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide with gross negligence after allegedly causing a fiery vehicular crash that resulted in six deaths and eight injuries, Yahoo! News reports.
The crash occurred on August 4 at approximately 1:30 PM when 37-year-old Nicole Lorraine Linton allegedly drove her car at a speed of around 100 miles per hour through a red light at a Windsor Hills intersection in Los Angeles, impacting up to eight vehicles. Fatalities of the crash include 23-year-old Asherey Ryan, who was 8 months pregnant, her 11-month-old son, Alonzo Quintero, and her boyfriend, Reynold Lester. 66-year-old Craig Pitchford was also identified as a victim.
According to Fox 11, Linton is currently being held on $9 million bail at the Century Regional Detention Center. District Attorney George Gascón said last week that consideration of charges for the investigation could be presented to his office “as early as Monday.”
