LOS ANGELES – Charges could be filed as early as Monday against a registered nurse from Houston who is suspected of speeding a Mercedes through a Windsor Hills intersection Thursday, sparking a fiery crash that killed six people — including an infant and a pregnant woman.
Nicole Lorraine Linton, 37, was arrested Friday on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence. She was released from Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center this weekend, where she had been hospitalized with moderate injuries, and was being held on $9 million bail at the Century Regional Detention Center. Bail was initially set at $2 million but was increased.
District Attorney George Gascón said Friday that his office would be “working with law enforcement throughout the weekend,” and the investigation could be presented to his office for consideration of charges “as early as Monday.”
Well I hope some how something good comes from this. I hope she calm in god forgiveness. And then spend the rest of her life serving him. Gid is the only one who can wash her sins im not going to hold her in judgement because I have mad bad decisions as well they just had different consequences so I’m no better than her she just has a lot more regret and guilt after killing 6 people 2 babies.. a lot of people won’t forgive her but the one who will is the only one that counts
Suicide mission after fighting with boyfriend and then drinking and driving under the influence. Before you go down that hill, you go up a bigger hill. There was no malfunction, because if there was then she would’ve been slowed down while going up the hill before getting to the point where you go down. There’s reports that she almost hit someone going driving erratically minutes before the unfortunate crash. This was intention. Her life is done, she killed 6 people. So sad! Prayers to the families dealing with these heavy and unexpected losses.
Sorry for everyone who has lost a loved one but my daughter who has the same name but lives in the uk has been getting hate mate on her social media because of this please If anyone reading this has been posting please stop .
She blanked out in a screaming-duel with her boyfriend with who she was face-timing while driving drunk and possibly drugged. In other words: She lost it and forgot everything around her for a moment in full emotional distress. Just research online a bit. Lots of details already out there. And now imagine she would have been a white or Arabic man. There would be a worldwide outcry with all kinds of suspicions that are not even mentioned regarding this crazy killer nurse. Nuff sed.
When has there ever been a worldwide outcry for the heinous acts of white men? 🤣
Super stupid comment Mel
She wasn’t drunk
Don’t think there was any brake or acceleration issue with the Mercedes. She is an aggressive driver and also not right emotionally who most likely looked up to a green light way back and became an idiot texting or just being on her phone. They should check her cell phone company and check text/call time logs. Super sad tragedies 🙁
Clearly you didn’t read more into the story.
YES YES yES , i had a Rodeo seven yrs ago i brought used,three yrs.later while at STOP Light the engine would eccelerate i held brakes with both feet then hit brake release which ALL help.This occurred three / four times a week.I GOT RID of it, When i was growing up cars were made of METAL and ELECTRICAL but today there just a COMPUTER on Wheels, With ALL that electronic crap these vehicles can have board problems or have over loads, lines burn out, bad readings,NOW their making vehicles to run WITHOUT an OPERATOR, THIS IS MADNESS!!!!!!!!!!!
Has ZERO to do with the car itself. Nice try. You her cousin?
Has ZERO to do with the car.
Gascon is the DA. Doubt much will happen to her, maybe probation, unless her trial starts after Gascon is recalled from office. He loves criminals and despises innocent victims.
Not this one. He’s smart enough to know he’d be eviscerated with low bail on this one. He’s in the process of a possible recall.
suicide by car idiots
I couldn’t tell from the gas station video angle but, don’t remember seeing any tail lights ?
Regardless the vehicle’s issues; just before impact, wouldn’t you be standing on the brake pedal and/or pulling the parking brake handle ?
With my tailbone two inches off the seat, screaming explatives of religious profanity ?
Toyota Cambry had a problem with gas paddle , paddle would get stuck with floor matt.
How did she even survive?
Just can’t believe it would be drugs or alcohol in the middle of day on busy street with
a person being in the profession as an RN. Blood test and background check will tell all.
Suggest authorities also analyze the black box / ECU.
Certain malfunctioning of ECU in an automobile can continue a surge immediately
following the pressing of gas pedal. If this happens, car will continue to accelerate
at high speed with driver having no control. Unless you don’t panic and throw it into neutral, the outcome can be very bad. Happened to me twice on same car many years back before ECU
went out completely a short time later. No doubt in my mind a defective ECU was the problem.
I’ve heard of this (or similar things) happening, yes! Read about a man driving a Toyota who went to prison for killing a family, and he maintained his innocence — that he did not accelerate and was not able to brake. He eventually got out of prison after the car’s defect came to light.
I agree, I dont understand why someone like her who is a successful nurse would be drunk in the middle of the day, it said she had left work and had an argument with her boyfriend but still cant imagine she would get drunk and cause that much damage. I too believe maybe it was a malfunction of her car.
This was intentional according to reports.
I’m a Nurse and I cannot tell you how many Nurses I know that have been in trouble for either divert drugs or been addicted to drugs. Just because you a Hollier than thou RN doesn’t mean shit.
Sounds like you’re an LPN.
Lee, I seriously doubt your an RN, more likely a CNA because your comment was totally stupid. If you are really a RN I feel bad for your patients.
I agree with you
did you have a fight with your boyfriend too. Not a car problem, moron.go troll on a Detroit blog. These innocent people who died in the crash and theri next of kin could care less about your lovelife. much less about your fkn car. dignity robber!
The question that the Court must ask is why was Ms. Nicole Lorraine Linton speeding in the first place? Was she running late to work? Was she on her phone? Was she drunk? Was she distracted? This beautiful woman ruined her career and devasted the lives of family members of the victims involved in the traffic collision.
She worked at Kaiser Cadillac so definitely wasn’t heading there.
You mean Kaiser Permanante??
She meant Kaiser on Cadillac smart ass.
Most ppl don’t know Cadillac is also a street name. That’s a legitimate question.
Thank you. I didn’t.
No. They mean Kaiser Permanente on Cadillac Blvd. That place is in the opposite direction from where she traveling in the video.
As another here noted, there can be car defects which will cause sudden acceleration and no ability to break. Read for yourself:
https://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/08/06/toyota.recall.appeal/index.html#:~:text=Ramsey%20County%2C%20Minnesota%2C%20District%20Court%20Judge%20Joanne%20Smith,free%20man%2C%22%20Gaertner%20said%20in%20a%20written%20statement. Anyway. Time will tell if she’s at fault. Tragic for everyone involved.
Maybe they need more key-control laws?
Why are you people looking up Toyota vehicles??? She was driving a Mercedes. Also, its already cleared up that she was speeding and under the influence after a break up with a guy who no longer wanted to deal with her crazy self-absorbed narcissistic behind. The woman is just a a-hole and her ways have caught up to her.
Wow. You are totally clueless. Good try though……not
It seems everyone for got about the rest of the family that lost there loves ones . The friends and family from the nurse said she was drunk that’s no escuse for what she did .never should she had got into the car in the first place if she was drunk. There’s a lot if life taken .for that simple mistake of drinking and driveing
this woman was found to have no alcohol or drugs in her system. please stop repeating that.
They didn’t find no Alcohol or drugs on her system cause she had to many pain medication that’s the reason why
I didn’t hear the DA say that.
And the fact that you think you know who and what this woman is after a paragraph tells us YOU are projecting big time……!
