Charges are expected as soon as Monday for the traveling nurse from Texas accused of speeding through a Los Angeles intersection last week, causing a fiery crash that left six people dead, including a baby and an eight and half month pregnant woman who was on her way to prenatal checkup.

Nicole Lorraine Linton, a 37-year-old traveling nurse from Houston, Texas, was arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide with gross negligence after allegedly driving a Mercedes at a speed of nearly 100 mph through a red light at an intersection in the Windsor Hills section of Los Angeles, causing a fiery crash Thursday.

Linton is hospitalized with moderate injuries at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, California Highway Patrol said.

Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said Friday that his office would be working with law enforcement throughout the weekend and the investigation could be presented to his office for consideration of charges “as early as Monday,” FOX 11 Los Angeles reported.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this tragedy. At this time, we are not able to comment on what has been reported as a criminal investigation.”
