According to Fox 11, Linton is a travel nurse at Kaiser Permanente’s West Los Angeles Medical Center.

The station reported that investigators said Linton was driving more than 100 miles per hour (mph) in a 35 mph zone at 1:30 pm PT Thursday.

The CHP said the Mercedes sedan ran a red light, never braking, and Officer Franco Pepi told The Associated Press that detectives are looking into whether Linton had a medical episode or was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Witnesses at the scene in the Windsor Hills area told Fox News that the collision caused a large explosion that sounded like a bomb.

A child thrown from a vehicle landed at a gas station.

“A woman took the baby out, she ran into the store with the child, but you could tell there was no life,” said Alfonso Word.

“I think the devastating part is you hear the screams. I don’t know if it was one of the victims with the car burning or what,” he added.

A pregnant woman, 23-year-old Asheri Ryan, and her unborn child and infant son were reportedly killed in the crash. According to her sister, they were going to a prenatal doctor’s appointment.

An infant also died in the accident and seven others were hospitalized.

Pepi said the other victims suffered minor injuries and included a 33-year-old woman and six children between the ages of 1 and 15.
