  • Linton was allegedly driving about 100mph when she slammed into traffic
  • The crash left six dead including pregnant mother Asherey Ryan, 23
  • Ryan was pronounced dead at the scene alongside her one-year-old child Alonzo Luchiano Quintero and her unborn baby boy

An ICU nurse has been charged with six counts of murder and five counts of vehicular manslaughter after a fiery 100mph crash left a pregnant mother, her unborn child, one-year-old son and four others dead.

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

During her first court appearance on Monday, tears could be seen rolling down Linton’s face. The suspect behind the wheel of the deadly crash was in a wheelchair with a brace on her arm due to injuries she sustained during the crash. This comes just days after she was treated at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

If convicted as charged, Linton faces up to 90 years to life in prison. She was not given bail at her hearing, so her next dates in court will involve a bail review. Linton will be back in front of a judge on August 15, then her arraignment will resume on October 26.

Nicole L. Linton, 37, is being held on a $9million bond following the fatal car crash in Los Angeles. She is expected to appear at Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center on Monday Tabia Johnson, a witness to the crash, took a photo of the suspect, Nicole L.

Gascón said Linton was traveling at speeds of at least 90mph when she sped through a read light and hit crossing vehicles at the busy intersection of La Brea and Slauson Avenues.

Eight-month pregnant Asherey Ryan, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene alongside her one-year-old child Alonzo Luchiano Quintero and her unborn baby boy following the horrible crash.

The unborn child’s father, Reynold Lester, was also killed in the crash after the car split in half immediately on impact, those close to the family confirmed.

Asherey, Reynold, and little Alonzo were on their way to a doctor’s appointment for a pregnancy check-up when Linton smashed into the car they were traveling in. ‘A young family was destroyed in the blink of an eye,’ Gascón said Monday. ‘There’s catastrophic damage to the families and friends of those killed and injured.

‘It’s not only a tremendous loss to their families, but to our entire community, who learned of this incredible tragedy who watched the now viral video of the collision.’

One-year-old baby boy Alonzo (pictured) was also killed in the horrific collision between South La Brea Avenue and Slauson Avenue on Thursday afternoon.

LA County DA George Gascón said Linton was traveling at speeds of at least 90mph when she sped through a read light and hit crossing vehicles at the busy intersection of La Brea and Slauson Avenues.
