LOS ANGELES – Authorities have released the names of two of the victims who were killed in a crash at a Windsor Hills intersection who have been identified by family members and mourners at a memorial, according to various media reports Thursday.
One of the victims is Lynette Noble. Friends and family of Noble gathered at a memorial on Wednesday night to pay respects to Noble, and told Fox 11 they had no idea about her death until days after the crash that happened last Thursday.
The other victim, 43-year-old Natesha Lewis, was also killed in the crash. Jasmond Nelson, her sister, told Fox 11 that she and her family also found out Lewis was killed days after the crash.
A nurse from Houston accused of running a red light and speeding into a Windsor Hills intersection — sparking a fiery chain-reaction crash that killed six people, including a pregnant mother, her infant son and unborn baby – – remains held without bail after being charged with six counts of murder.
Nicole Lorraine Linton, 37, was also charged Monday with five counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence for last Thursday’s crash at La Brea and Slauson avenues. Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said his office cannot file the manslaughter charge in a case involving an unborn child.
Linton — who made her first appearance in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom Monday afternoon shortly after the charges were filed — was ordered to be held without bail at the prosecution’s request.
She is due back in court for a bail review hearing next Monday, with arraignment postponed until Oct. 26.
Linton could face up to 90 years to life in state prison if convicted as charged, according to Gascón.
