LOS ANGELES – A Houston woman is facing charges after a fiery crash at a Los Angeles intersection that killed six people, including a pregnant woman, and injured several others, authorities say.

Nicole Lorraine Linton, 37, sustained moderate injuries in the crash, California Highway Patrol officials said in a release. She was driving her Mercedes-Benz when she allegedly blew through a red light at a busy intersection, causing a chain-reaction crash involving multiple vehicles.

Linton is charged with vehicular manslaughter and gross negligence, according to California Highway Patrol.

Family members confirmed to KNBC that Linton was a traveling nurse from Houston working in Los Angeles.

Video showed the Mercedes careening through an intersection, striking at least two cars that exploded in flames and were sent hurtling onto a sidewalk, winding up against the gas station’s corner sign. A fiery streak led to one car. One vehicle was torn in half.

“It was definitely one of the most horrific crashes that we’ve seen,” CHP Officer Franco Pepi told The Associated Press on Friday.

The car was going at least 50 mph (80 kph) as it raced through the crowded intersection, Pepi said Thursday. Eight people were taken to the hospital, including Linton.

The other victims had minor injuries and included a 33-year-old woman and six children ranging in age from 1 to 15 years old, Pepi said.
