Asherey Ryan, who was 23 years old and eight months pregnant with her second son, Armani Lester, was killed along with Armani and her one-year-old son, Alonzo, on August 4, 2022. In the car accident, Armani’s father, Reynold Lester, and two women in another car, whose names have not yet been released, died. Surveillance cameras showed ICU nurse Nicole Linton crashing her Mercedes into six cars at 90mph and going through a red light onto a busy Windsor Hills intersection. Due to the horrific crash, the cars across the street collided and burst into flames just meters from a gas station.
Asherey Ryan had already chosen the name “Armani” for her unborn child. When the accident happened, the family was on their way to the hospital to have a pregnant woman checked out. After his mother died in the crash, the unborn baby was removed from the womb. Prosecutors have also charged Linton with killing Armani. They say that due to the accident, Armani was born and died on the same day. The crash immediately broke the other family’s car in half. Alonzo was thrown from his car seat and landed at the feet of a witness. The witness tried to save the baby but it was too late. The coroner’s office says his body was found a long way from his mother’s. Her lawyers say she has had “deep” mental health issues in the past.
But it’s not clear what Linton’s real reason for going so fast is. In the past two years, she has held six nursing jobs in five states. It’s also unclear why she was allowed to work in the healthcare system, particularly in intensive care, as her lawyer said her mental health problems were getting worse. In 2010, she began working in “outside” healthcare at NYU, although she didn’t complete her nursing degree until 2015. AMN Healthcare is a company that sends qualified contractors who are registered nurses to where they are most needed. AMN Healthcare has not said anything about Nicole Linton’s job or what type of background checks were carried out when she first started working there. “At the moment we cannot say anything about an ongoing criminal investigation. “If you have additional questions, you should escalate them to law enforcement,” a spokesman said. If found guilty of manslaughter, she faces up to 90 years in prison and $9 million bail. Although Linton did not appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, police say her previous driver’s license was to warn her of the dangers of reckless driving.
The man’s father, Luis Quintero, said: “I want justice to be done. Something for her, some kind of punishment for what she did. Then maybe I can forgive her. Not now. My son was taken away from me. And I won’t see him again.” “He had a smile that could brighten anyone’s day and he was always happy and excited. “I loved the way he grabbed his hands when he was excited and kicked his legs,” said Luis Quintero, the boy’s father.
People pay their respects at the crash site in Windsor Hills, Los Angeles. The family set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for funeral expenses and so far they have raised more than $163,000. On Monday, Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón said, “In the blink of an eye, a young family was wiped out.” “The families and friends of those killed or injured were injured beyond repair. “It is a terrible loss for their families and for our entire community who learned of this after seeing the now famous video of the event,” he said.
