Windsor Hills crash: Tears flow from suspect’s eyes during first court appearance

The sister of the pregnant woman who died with her infant son in a fiery Los Angeles crash says her family forgives the ICU nurse accused of causing the crash.

She’seana Kerr told KTLA that in spite of her immense grief over the deaths of Asherey Ryan and 11-month-old nephew Alonzo Quintero, she sympathised with ICU nurse Nicole Linton, who is facing six counts of murder.

Ms Ryan, 23, was six months pregnant and had been on her way to a prenatal checkup with her fiancé Reynold Lester, who also died in the crash.

“I just want to tell her that we forgive her,” Ms Kerr told the LA-based news outlet. “She will have to live with this for the rest of her life. That’s why she was spared. We understand it already.”

Six people died and eight more were injured when a Mercedes-Benz allegedly driven by Ms Linton ran a red light at high speed at an intersection in Windsor Hills, about 10 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles, last Thursday.

Surveillance cameras captured the car slamming into several vehicles before it erupted in flames.
