Los Angeles prosecutors say traveling nurse Nicole Linton's actions were "conscious and deliberate" in the moments before she caused a crash that killed 6 people on August 4.

Linton's lawyer had argued that she suffered an "apparent lapse of consciousness" when she ran a red light and plowed her Mercedes-Benz into cars at an intersection.

The fiery crash killed six people and injured seven others. Among the victims was a pregnant woman and her her 11-month-old son.

According to Linton's attorneys, the Houston nurse was previously diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and struggled to find appropriate mental health treatment for years.

However, analysis of the Mercedes-Benz's on board computer shows Linton floored the gas pedal and reached a top speed of 130 mph before running the red light.

"Further analysis reveals that her speed at impact was in fact 130 mph and that she floored the gas pedal for at least the 5 seconds leading into the crash, going from 122 mph to 130 mph," the prosecutor's office stated in a court filing obtained by the LA Times on Friday.

The court documents stated Linton had "complete control over steering, maintaining the tilt of the steering wheel to keep her car traveling directly toward the crowded intersection."

"This NASCAR-worthy performance flies in the face of the notion that she was unconscious or incapacitated," the prosecutors said.

Her attorneys had asked the court to release Linton into a mental health treatment facility "where she can be monitored and treated for her illness."

Linton remains in jail on a $300,000 bond.

Nicole Linton's attorneys are preparing an insanity defense for the traveling nurse who is facing manslaughter charges for causing a deadly car crash in Los Angeles County.

Police say Linton's Mercedes Benz was speeding at 90 mph when she ran a red light and crashed into multiple cars at the intersection of Slauson and La Brea on August 4.

The fiery crash killed six people and injured seven others. Among the victims was a pregnant woman Asherey Ryan and her her 11-month-old son.

According to court documents obtained by the New York Post, Linton's attorney claims she suffered a "frightening" mental health crisis and an "apparent lapse of consciousness" at the time of the crash.

"Mental incapacitation and unconsciousness are, of course, complete defenses to crimes under California law," Linton's attorneys wrote.

According to her attorneys, the Houston nurse suffered from bipolar disorder, and struggled to find appropriate mental health treatment for years.

She caused, or was involved in 13 previous car crashes in the years leading up to the August 4 crash.

In a letter to the court, Linton's sister Camille Linton detailed her movements on the day of the crash.

Linton, 37, was at work at a Los Angeles hospital when she went home for lunch and stripped naked before she FaceTimed Camille.

Linton returned to work around 1:30 p.m., and called her sister again to say she was leaving the hospital for the day. Minutes later, a surveillance camera captured an image of Linton's Mercedes stopped at a red light.

The blurred image shows Linton waving her middle finger through the driver's side window.

Seconds later, Linton's Mercedes careened through a red light and slammed into multiple cars, causing a fireball at a nearby gas station.

A doctor who examined Linton after the crash said she had no memory of the tragedy.

"She has no recollection of the events that led to her collision," Dr. William Winter wrote on Aug. 6. "The next thing she recalled was lying on the pavement and seeing that her car was on fire."

Linton's sister says the family became aware of her mental problems more than four years ago when she was studying to be a nurse anesthetist at the University of Texas at Houston, the L.A. Times reported.

"The stress was too much for her and it 'broke' her," Camille wrote. "Thus beginning the journey of Nicole's 4-year struggle with mental illness."

In May 2018, Linton suffered her first mental breakdown. She was arrested by Houston police after she jumped onto the hood of a patrol car.

She was committed to a psychiatric ward where she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and prescribed medications, according to the L.A. Times.

Linton was non-compliant with her medications and she was again involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital.

As a traveling nurse, Linton worked at hospitals in 5 states over 2 years.

Linton's struggles with mental health is well-documented. Her attorneys wrote, "In the days and hours leading up to the events of August 4, Nicole's behavior became increasingly frightening."

Her attorneys asked the court to release Linton into a mental health treatment facility "where she can be monitored and treated for her illness."

Linton remains in jail on a $300,000 bond as of Wednesday.

According to a report, actress Anne Heche's car was remotely hacked and controlled by an unknown person before it crashed.

Rumors swirled online that Heche's car was remotely hacked because she was about to release a film exposing sex trafficking in Hollywood.

According to an article in Motoring Life, a security flaw in Mini Cooper cars left the vehicles open to hacking.

"The fear that your car can be hacked and made to crash is not new, and it's not completely unfounded," the Washington Post wrote in a recent article. "Concerns about automotive cyber security have been raised since automakers began outfitting cars and trucks with computer-controlled systems."

Heche, 53, was pronounced brain dead days after her electric Mini Cooper crashed into a house in the Mar Vista neighborhood on Aug. 5.

Seconds before the fiery crash, the actress' car plowed into a garage at an apartment complex. A resident ran outside and snapped a photo of Heche before she sped off.

Minutes later, a Ring doorbell camera captured the blue Mini Cooper careening down a residential street. Seconds later, brakes screeching followed by a collision can be heard on the Ring camera.

The impact sparked a blaze that destroyed the house. The homeowner barely made it out alive with her two dogs and a turtle.

Heche was pulled out of the home's rubble about an hour later.

Video footage from a Los Angeles news station shows Heche covered in a white sheet on a gurney. Firefighters apparently did not provide emergency medical treatment such as oxygen or intravenous fluids - life-saving measures that are standard for a patient suffering from smoke inhalation and burns.

Videos show Heche sitting up on the gurney and appearing to struggle with the firefighters.

The firefighters likely assumed she was dead - until she threw the sheet off of her face and sat up abruptly on the gurney.

Paramedics rushed Heche to the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital where she slipped into a coma and died on August 11.

A salon owner who spoke with Heche minutes before the crash said she was alert and did not appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Richard Glass, owner of Glass Hair Design salon in Venice Beach, said Heche stopped in to buy a red wig from him.

Glass shared a photo of himself posing with the star on Instagram. He captioned the image: "So I met @anneheche today and she purchased a #redwig so random.."

Glass vigorously denied rumors that he supplied the actress with drugs prior to the accidents.

Blood work showed Heche had fentanyl and cocaine in her system in the hospital.

Heche previously discussed her battles with drugs in interviews and on her podcast.

"I drank. I smoked. I did drugs. I had sex with people. I did anything I could to get the shame out of my life," she told ABC News in 2001.

Heche said she used drugs because of unresolved childhood issues. She said she was sexually abused by her father, Donald Heche.

"I'm not crazy, but it's a crazy life. I was raised in a crazy family and it took 31 years to get the crazy out of me."

Heche, a native of Aurora, Ohio, dated actress and comedienne Ellen DeGeneres in the 1990s. Following their breakup, she stripped down to her bra and panties in the California desert and walked a mile to a stranger's home, where she showered before she was transported to a hospital mental ward.

"I was told to go to a place where I would meet a spaceship," Heche told the homeowner. "I was told in order to get on the spaceship that I would have to take a hit of ecstasy."

NFL 1st round draft pick Jeff Gladney and his girlfriend, Mercedes Palacios, were killed in a fiery car crash in Dallas early Monday morning.

The Arizona Cardinals cornerback was driving a white Mercedes G-Wagon with his girlfriend in the passenger seat.

Police say Gladney's car clipped the rear bumper of another vehicle and he lost control around 2:30 a.m. Monday. The SUV flipped and came to rest under the Woodall Rodgers overpass near Routh Street, according to the Star-Telegram.

Gladney and Palacios, both 25, were trapped in the overturned G-Wagon. They died in the burning wreckage.

Friends of Palacios say she posted on her social media account while she and Gladney partied in the hours before the crash.

The Cardinals released a statement saying, "We are devastated to learn of Jeff Gladney's passing. Our hearts go out to his family, friends and all who are mourning this tremendous loss."

Gladney started his career as a first round draft pick with the Minnesota Vikings. He was waived after an ex-girlfriend accused him of abusing her. He was later found innocent of the charges and was signed by the Cardinals.

Gladney leaves behind a toddler son from a previous relationship. In an Instagram post last July, he wrote: "My first born, you the one."

In another post featuring a video of his son next to a money counting machine, he wrote:

"Happy 1st birthday to the lil guy who came in and changed my life. From the first time i laid eyes on you I've been in love. You wouldn't understand how the thought of you has gotten me through many of my darkest days. Although we have many many more birthdays and memories to come this one is special.

A car driven by Washington Football Team DB Deshazor Everett was involved in a single-car rollover crash that killed his passenger, Olivia S. Peters.

Peters, 29, died after Everett's 2010 Nissan GT-R hit several trees before rolling over on Thursday night in Loudin County, Virginia, according to TMZ.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, which is investigating the accident, said Everett was transported to a hospital, where he is listed in critical but stable condition.

Sources tell Black Sports Online that Everett and Peters were possibly in a romantic relationship at the time of the crash. She was pronounced dead at Stone Springs Hospital.

Everett, 29, does not drink, so alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.

Peters is an occupational therapist from Las Vegas, Nevada, according to her family who released photos of her at work. Peters opened offices in Las Vegas and NYC, according to a family statement.

It is not clear if she was wearing a seat belt.

According to Spotrac.com, Everett signed a 3-year, $6 million contract with the Washington Redskins. His contract included a $1 million signing bonus with $1.7 million guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $2 million.

The Washington Football Team, formerly Redskins, issued a statement that read, in part:

"We've been made aware of an automobile accident last night involving Deshazor Everett. A passenger in his vehicle lost their life and we extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends who lost a loved one."

"We get waves of grief. We sob uncontrollably. Then it's back to regular conversation," he added.

An investigation into the crash, which caused one of the cars to catch fire, is ongoing. No charges had been made as WENN.com went to press.

Sergeant Emil Brimway, of the Burbank Police Department, told ABC7 that the crash is the worst he's seen in his nearly 20 years as a police officer.

"In my 19-year-career, I haven't seen anything like this, personally," he said. "Not to this magnitude and this level of debris over a two-city block span."

Gwinnett County PD

The driver of a van packed with 16 women that crashed near Atlanta over the weekend has been charged with vehicular homicide.

Monica Manire was arrested Wednesday and charged with six counts of homicide by vehicle in the first degree, Fox 5 Atlanta reported. She was also charged with improper lane change.

Manire, 32, of Byron, was driving the 2002 Dodge Ram van to a sober living meeting in Gwinnett County when she recklessly changed lanes, causing the van to flip on its side and slide across 2 lanes of traffic.

She is being held at the Gwinnett County Jail, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.

According to a police report, the van was heading north on I-85, approaching the I-985 split, when another vehicle unexpectedly changed lanes in front of it.

Manire changed lanes to avoid a collision. The van lost control and rolled over on its side before sliding across two lanes and striking a guard rail where it burst into flames.

A motorist kicked out the windshield in a desperate attempt to reach the passengers trapped inside the burning van.

10 people including Manire made it out alive, but six women perished in the fire.

Gwinnett County police released the names of the victims who are all from Georgia.

Among the dead was Alishia Carroll of Columbus, a 34-year-old mother of four, who was trying to kick her addictions.

"She was finally trying to get good for herself and good for kids and God just wanted to take her home," Carroll's oldest child, Kylie Mitchell, told WXIA-TV.

The other deceased victims are Kristie Whitfield, 44, of Mount Airy, Ashleigh Paris, 26, of Kennesaw, Tina Rice, 53, of Atlanta, Normisha Monroe, 38, of Norcross, and Rose Patrick, 34, of Ellabell.

Quindon Tarver, best known for his performance in Romeo + Juliet, died in a single car accident, according to multiple reports. He was 38.

Tarver died after he crashed his car into a wall on the President George Bush Turnpike in Dallas, Texas on Friday, April 2, his uncle Willie Tarver, told the Daily Beast.

He gained fame as a child for his vocal performance in Romeo + Juliet, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.

"He loved everybody," another uncle, Kevin Tarver, told the Daily Beast about his nephew. "He loved music since he was young, and singing eventually took him all around the world. That was his passion."

Tarver started out singing in church choirs and appeared as a choir boy in Baz Luhrmann's modern adaptation of the William Shakespeare tragedy. He performed covers of Prince's "When Doves Cry" and Rozalla's "Everybody's Free."

He also appeared in Madonna's "Like a Prayer" music video, and on seasons 2 and 7 of American Idol.

In an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in 2017, Quindon Tarver said his career tanked after he spoke out about being sexually abused by his former manager when he was on the same record label as B2K.

"I was hurting. I had been molested, I had been raped, I had lost my career, which is what I had dreamed of doing all my life," he said.

Tarver struggled with bisexuality, drugs, alcohol and suicidal thoughts. He was invited to sing "When Doves Cry" at a 2016 Prince tribute in Los Angeles, which he credits as a turning point in his life.

The singer released a new version of "Everybody's Free" in 2017, and came out with a single, "Stand Our Ground," in October, 2020.

In his final post on Instagram on March 25, Tarver spoke about suicidal thoughts and his belief in God.

He captioned the video:

"When I think of being at my lowest point in life & suicide was my only way out in 2012. After the attempted try that landed me on life support for 17 hours on a breathing machine... it was NOBODY BUT GOD that put breath back in my body! This @dorindaclarkcole song has been a testimonial song for me & it will hold dear to me heart forever! I thank God for being God!!!"

15 migrants died after the SUV they were passengers in collided with a semi truck on Tuesday, around 6:15 AM local time near the California-Mexico border.

The highway patrol said the Ford Expedition, designed to carry six people, was packed with 27 migrants when it entered a busy intersection where it collided with a gravel-filled semitruck.

Fourteen people, including the Ford driver, were pronounced dead at the scene, and another passenger died at a hospital, officials said.

California Highway Patrol Border Division Chief Omar Watson said the SUV had no seats other than the driver's seat and front passenger's seat.

Watson did not indicate whether the migrants had just entered the country.

He said several of the passengers were ejected from the vehicle and died upon impact.

"Everyone in the vehicle was injured to some extent," Watson told reporters.

"Obviously, that vehicle is not meant for that many people," he added.

Watson said the SUV's driver may have ran the stop sign. "Subsequently the big rig collided with the left side of the Ford Expedition."

No charges have been filed in the crash.

Forensics experts suggest golf legend Tiger Woods may have fallen asleep at the wheel prior to his rollover car crash.

Woods, who was in town to host the Genesis Invitational golf, had just left his hotel after 7 a.m. local time, and was speeding in his Genesis 80 sports utility vehicle when he lost control of the SUV on Hawthorne Boulevard in Rancho Palos Verdes.

The vehicle crossed a median and smashed into a tree before flipping multiple times and coming to rest on its side in a ditch.

The 45-year-old golfer fractured several bones in his lower right leg and ankle, which suggests he slammed on the brake at the time of impact, experts told USA Today.

Forensic analysis indicates Woods hit the brake late into the collision sequence.

One expert told USA Today that the SUV did not change direction when entering the curve -- an indication that the car went straight rather than follow the curve in the road.

Woods is recovering from a second surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was transferred on Friday. He was not charged in the accident.

CNN anchor Andy Scholes has apologized for insensitive remarks he made during a live broadcast following Tiger Woods' rollover car accident on Tuesday.

Woods, 45, underwent a "long surgical procedure" on his right leg and ankle following a single-car crash near Los Angeles just after 7 a.m. local time.

The iconic golfer had just left his hotel, and was speeding in his Genesis GV80 sports utility vehicle when he lost control of the SUV at a curve in the road.

The vehicle crossed a divider and smashed into trees before rolling over multiple times and coming to rest on its side in a ditch near Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

Scholes, who was anchoring a CNN segment hours after the crash, said, "Stunned I guess, but not entirely surprised by, you know, what we're seeing here."

He added:

"Tiger, back in 2017, was found by police, pulled over to the side of the road. You know, asleep in his car. He had said he had taken a lot of painkillers at that time. Because, as well all know, Tiger has undergone a lot of surgeries over the years and painkillers have become a part of his life."

Scholes' remarks prompted a furious backlash on social media, including from his peers in mainstream media.

"This is just irresponsible journalism," tweeted Hemal Jhaveri, an editor for USA Today Sports. "We don't know anything yet. CNN needs to get some real sports reporters."

Scholes repeatedly apologized to Twitter users, saying, "Sorry didn't mean for it to come out that way."

Woods remains hospitalized as he recovers from surgery to stabilize bones in his lower right leg.
 

Automotive experts say the Genesis GV80 Woods was driving may have saved the golfing icon's life.

Woods is pictured standing next to the car he was driving at the time of the accident.

Among the SUV's safety features is a blind-spot monitor with "collision-avoidance assist" technology, a "driver attention warning" system, and "semi-autonomous driving mode" that adapts over time to the owner's typical driving style.

The SUV also features a fortified frame that absorbs impact during rollovers.

Tiger Woods is "awake and responsive" after successfully undergoing a "long surgical procedure" on his right leg and ankle following a single-car crash near Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Woods, who lives in Jupiter, Florida, was in town to host the Genesis Invitational golf event held at The Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif. from Feb. 15-Feb. 21. He also met with celebrities for a promotional event with Golf Digest.

The iconic golfer had just left his hotel after 7 a.m. local time, and was speeding in his Genesis 80 sports utility vehicle when he lost control of the SUV at a curve in the road.

The vehicle crossed a divider and smashed into trees before rolling over multiple times and coming to rest on its side in a ditch near Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

Woods, who was conscious and calm, was cut out of the vehicle through the windshield and transported by ambulance to the nearby Harbor - UCLA Medical Center, where he underwent surgery to repair multiple open fractures in his lower right leg.

Surgeons stabilized the bones in his right lower leg and ankle with pins and rods.

His team released a statement on Wednesday on Twitter, which read:

"We thank everyone for the overwhelming support and messages during this tough time... He has undergone a long surgical procedure on his lower right leg and ankle after being brought to the hospital."

There was also a detailed statement from his physician, Dr. Anish Mahajan, who wrote:

"Mr Woods suffered significant orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity that were treated during emergency surgery by Orthopedic trauma specialists at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, a level 1 trauma center. "Comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones were stabilized by inserting a rod into the tibia. Additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins. Trauma to the muscle and soft-tissue of the leg required surgical release of the covering of the muscles to relieve pressure due to swelling."

According to the statement, Woods, 45, is "currently awake, responsive and recovering in his hospital room".

The accident comes just two months after he underwent a fifth back surgery in December, and he was hoping to be fit enough to play at the Masters Tournament in April.

It's not the first time Tiger has been involved in a serious car accident - he crashed an SUV into a tree in Florida in 2009 as he drove away from a marital dispute with his then-wife, Swedish model Elin Nordegren.

Following news of the crash on Tuesday, Woods' ex-girlfriend Lindsey Vonn was among those sending her prayers. "Praying for TW right now," she tweeted.

Rachel Uchitel - with whom the golfer had a brief fling which triggered the end of his marriage to Nordegren - revealed she was "shaken" by the incident, and wondered how it would affect his career in the long run.

"He's an athlete and his legs are essential to his sport and to him being who he is and he's already had trouble with his body up until this point," she told the New York Post. "He didn't need any more injuries."

Hours before the crash, actress Jada Pinkett Smith took to Instagram to share a photo of herself and Woods after playing a round of golf the day prior.

She captioned the image:

"Guess who I had the most awesome golf day with yesterdayyyyyy??? Yes! The magnificent @tigerwoods!!!! Yes ... dreams come true... I can't wait for you to see my golf journey with Tiger. Stay tuned! @golftv @golfdigest."

 

Golf great Jack Nicklaus also shared his thoughts, writing he is "deeply concerned" for Tiger following the accident and he offered up "heartfelt support and prayers".

Retired sports stars Alex Rodriguez and Michael Phelps also took to social media to wish Woods well.

"The driver and sole occupant was identified as PGA golfer, Eldrick 'Tiger' Woods. Mr. Woods was extricated from the wreck with the 'jaws of life' by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries."

Helicopter news footage from ABC7 shows the wrecked SUV left the road, rolled over, and came to rest on its side.

Woods, who is recovering from recent back surgery, previously admitted to an addiction to opioid narcotics as a result of back surgeries over the years.

He was arrested in 2017 after falling asleep behind the wheel of his car near his Jupiter Island, Florida, mansion at about 3:00 am. He was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The 45-year-old father-of-two agreed to take part in a first-time DUI offender program, which he completed.

He received a year of probation, was fined $250, and ordered to undergo 50 hours of community service along with regular drug tests. He was not allowed to drink alcohol during the probation period.

Woods' agent Mark Steinberg released a statement following Tuesday's crash.

"Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support," Steinberg said.

Police arrested a man who crashed his Tesla into a red Ferrari in Beverly Hills, California overnight.

Emergency personnel responded to a 2-vehicle crash in the area of Sunset Boulevard and North Canon Drive around 12:09 a.m. Wednesday.

The driver of the Ferrari is Christian Combs, the 22-year-old son of rap producer Sean Combs and the late fashion model Kim Porter, who passed away in 2018.
