LA Drunk Driver Kills 6: Upset Over Boyfriend 2

The six people killed included a pregnant woman, her infant, and a baby that landed in a gas station from the intersection. A woman picked up the baby, and rescuers tried to resuscitate the infant, but it was too late. The crash also injured eight other people.

The driver survived and is identified as Nicole Lorraine Linton, 37, a nurse licensed to work in California and Texas.

The California Highway Patrol forwarded the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and has recommended vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence charges be filed against Linton.

Authorities have yet to confirm whether or not alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash. A friend suspect told KTLA she believes Linton may have been impaired following a fight with her boyfriend.

She also stated, “She was drinking something and was not aware it was a red light because she shot straight through,” the woman said. Even if she were drinking, not many people would be doing 100 miles per hour on a busy afternoon.
