Nicole L. Linton, Drunk Driver That Caused Fiery Crash Faces 90 Years In Jail

Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón on Monday announced murder charges against Nicole Lorraine Linton, the 37-year-old nurse from Houston who police say ran a red light and plowed her speeding Mercedes through a busy intersection in Windsor Hills causing a deadly crash.

Six people were killed in the violent wreck at the intersection of S. La Brea Avenue and Slauson Avenue.

The dead include 23-year-old Asheray Ryan, her almost-one-year-old son Alonzo, her unborn son and the father of that unborn child, as well as two others. Gascón said his office cannot file the manslaughter charge in a case involving an unborn child.

The DA said the case was still under investigation, and wouldn’t discuss all of the details, but when asked if Linton was driving under the influence Gascón said, “There is no evidence of any alcohol use at this point.”

Linton was arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter as soon as she got out of the hospital last week. Jail records show she was held on a $9 million bail at the Century Regional Detection that was initially set at $2 million.

During her first court appearance on Monday, tears could be seen rolling down Linton’s face. The suspect behind the wheel of the deadly crash was in a wheelchair with a brace on her arm due to injuries she sustained during the crash. This comes just days after she was treated at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

If convicted as charged, Linton faces up to 90 years to life in prison. She was not given bail at her hearing, so her next dates in court will involve a bail review. Linton will be back in front of a judge on August 15, then her arraignment will resume on October 26.
