Armani’s father, Reynold Lester, was also killed in the car crash along with two women in a different vehicle. The identity of the women is unknown at the time of writing. The crash split Reynold’s car in half.
The couple’s first son Alonzo was sent flying through the air from his car seat. He landed near a witness’ feet who tried to save the child who had already passed away. His body was found separated from his mother’s according to the LA County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Asherey Ryan’s Family demands justice for the deceased
Asherey Ryan’s family has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to support the funeral services of the deceased. The page has managed to raise over $163,000 so far. The citizens are seen paying their tributes at the crash site, Windsor Hills, Los Angeles.
“In the flash of an eye, a young family was decimated,” Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón said on Monday.
“The relatives and friends of those slain and wounded have suffered irreparable devastation. It’s a great loss not just to their families, but to our whole community, who learned of this horrific tragedy after seeing the now-viral footage of the incident,” he added.
Luis Quintero, Alonzo’s father said, “I want to see justice served. Something for her, payback for what she’s done. Maybe then I can forgive her. But not now. She took my son away from me. And I will never see him.” “He had a smile that would brighten up your day no matter what, he was full of joy, very excited. I loved when he gripped his hands when he would kick his legs from excitement,” grieving father, Luis Quintero added.
Nicole L. Linton has a previous record of accidents
She was cooperating with investigators to check her bloodwork and if she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs while driving. She was released from the hospital on Monday and charged with murder of six and vehicular manslaughter of five by the LA County district attorney.
However, the exact motive for rash driving is unknown at the moment. She was reportedly drunk and fighting with her partner when the crash happened. Her attorney says she has a profound history of mental health problems.
She had worked in six nursing jobs in five states over the past 2 years. It remains unclear why she was allowed to work in the healthcare industry, that too in the ICU if her mental health was declining profoundly.
The Prosecutors also revealed in court that Linton was involved in 13 prior road accidents, including one in 2020 in which two vehicles were totaled. We have also received crash records from two incidents in Texas, one in 2013 and one in 2016.
