CHP officers arrested a woman Friday who they say caused a fiery multi-car crash in Windsor Hills that killed 6 people, including a baby and a pregnant woman.
Nicole L. Linton, identified by multiple law enforcement sources as a nurse from Texas, will be booked after she’s released from a hospital where she’s being treated for injuries she sustained in the wreck.
Clients at a Windsor Hills gas station watched in horror as a fiery crash left six people dead. Lauren Coronado reports for the NBC4 News at 11 pm on Aug. 4, 2022.
The arrest was also confirmed by members of Linton’s family.
Public records in Texas show someone with the same name as a registered nurse with a current, valid license.
Kaiser Permanente released the following statement regarding the crash:
