A bail hearing for the nurse accused of speeding dangerously and triggering a catastrophic collision in Windsor Hills that killed six people, including a pregnant lady, her newborn boy, and her unborn son, was postponed by a judge in Los Angeles on Monday.
Linton’s counsel asked for additional time during a court hearing to examine allegations that Linton has a history of automobile accidents as well as mental health problems. The 31st of August is the new hearing date.
Linton’s legal team referred to media allegations that Linton had previously been engaged in more than a dozen car accidents as “not true.”
For the six uninvolved victims of the crash that shook the Los Angeles neighbourhood, she is accused of six counts of murder.
The Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatched workers to the intersection of La Brea and Slauson avenues for the eight-vehicle accident on the afternoon of August 4.
Investigators believe that the Mercedes-driver Benz’s was travelling at 90 mph when the horrific accident was captured on surveillance camera. Linton also didn’t seem to brake, according to the authorities.
Linton’s Mercedes-Benz and two other automobiles caught fire as a result of the collision. After at least one vehicle struck a gas station sign, the dramatic collision came to a stop at the southwest corner of the crossroads.
The accident site, according to a California Highway Patrol trooper, “nearly looks like a battle zone.”
According to investigators, Linton was involved in 13 collisions outside of California. One of the collisions apparently happened as recently as 2020, according to prosecutors, and additional people were hurt in that instance.
There is no proof that alcohol contributed to the Windsor Hills crash, according to Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón, who also noted that the investigation is ongoing.
