Nurse named suspect in crash fatal to six
LOS ANGELES - A registered nurse has been arrested and will be booked on vehicular manslaughter charges in the fiery Windsor Hills crash that killed five people, including a pregnant woman, law enforcement sources confirmed to The Los Angeles Times on Friday.
Investigators have arrested Nicole Linton, 37, who they said was driving the speeding Mercedes-Benz that smashed through traffic at the intersection of La Brea and Slauson avenues.
Linton is currently in the hospital and is cooperating with California Highway Patrol investigators, sources said.
Authorities are checking Linton’s bloodwork to determine if she was under the influence at the time of the crash, according to two law enforcement sources.
She is to be formally charged by the Los Angeles County district attorney on Monday. A family member of Linton’s declined to speak to a Times reporter on Friday.
Linton is likely to be charged with killing the unborn child as well as the five others.
