L.A nurse charged with 6 counts of murder after fiery crash

Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón on Monday announced charges against Nicole Lorraine Linton, the 37-year-old nurse from Houston who police say ran a red light and plowed her speeding Mercedes through a busy intersection in Windsor Hills causing a deadly crash.

Six people were killed during the violent wreck at the intersection of S. La Brea Avenue and Slauson Avenue. The deceased included a 23-year-old mother and her almost one-year-old son, Alonzo, her unborn son and the father of that unborn child, as well as two others.

Gascón said his office cannot file the manslaughter charge in a case involving an unborn child.

Police said Linton slammed her car into five other vehicles while driving as fast as 100 mph by an intersection at Windsor Hills.

“LA County DA George Gascón revealed during a press conference Monday there was no evidence Linton was under the influence of alcohol during the time of the crash. She was released from the hospital Sunday and is now held at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, California on a $9 million bond,” the Daily Mail reports.
