According to recent court documents submitted on Friday, the Houston-based traveling nurse, 37, was traveling 40 mph faster than originally believed. The records also show that she purposefully stomped the gas pedal for at least five seconds prior to squeezing past the busy junction of La Brea and Slauson Avenues in Los Angeles on August 4.
Nicole Lorraine Linton, the accused motorist who caused the catastrophic collision, was charged with six charges of murder and five counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence last week. Nicole was charged with murder for unborn child of the pregnant woman who was killed in the accident. The complaint stated that additional investigation showed that the driver’s actual speed at contact was 130 mph and that she had floored the gas pedal for at least five seconds prior to the collision, increasing her speed from 122 mph to 130 mph.
The nurse involved in the six-death Windsor Hills crash was denied bail and transferred to a hospital for mental illness.
Prosecutors had objected to the request, saying the defense’s suggestion that she suffered an “apparent lapse of consciousness” during a mental health crisis in the moments leading up to the crash “defies logic.” Her lawyer, Halim Dhanidina, requested that she be released to a mental health center under electronic surveillance.
According to KTLA, the court revoked Linton’s license while she waits to be tried for the horrific collision that claimed the lives of six people. As previously reported, Linton, 37, is suspected of speeding down La Brea Boulevard on August 4 and colliding with numerous automobiles, igniting the collision.
A baby boy, Asherey Ryan, 23, her boyfriend, and all three of them perished in the collision. Two additional women in another car were also found dead in the crash. There were six additional automobiles involved in the crash, including a second driver and five passengers in an SUV who suffered minor injuries. Despite having very serious mental health difficulties, Linton who caused the horrific LA crash worked at six hospitals.
