Cap……this is a CLEAR example of the old adage, when your time is up, there is nothing you’ll be able to do about it.

Btw, has there been ANY reporting explaining why this gal SPED against a red light in her Mercedes, causing this horrific tragedy?  :no:

That was horrific. Some are saying online the driver held out a phone to live stream the impending crash.

The worst part is that you can be out minding your own business, doing everything right and this happens to you. They say flying is much safer than driving or taking the train.

I used to live not far from where this happened at the intersection of La Brea and Slauson Avenues.  From what I read, she was heading south on La Brea toward Slauson or basically heading to Inglewood, CA. The direction she was travelling, it is a steep down hill grade.  The article states that she was doing somewhere between 80 to 100 mph just before impact. At the speed she was travelling, her Mercedes was like a bullet when it impacted those other vehicles, which is probably why she survived while five orher people plus a pregnant woman died.

So, here's some follow-up. The young lady who caused the crash is a co-worker of a friend of mine's. She (and my friend) is a traveling nurse. The young lady was working a shift at UCLA's hospital. She and her boyfriend were on the phone while she was at the hospital. Apparently, the boyfriend broke up with her over the phone and she stormed out the hospital, not finishing her shift, and jumped in the car and sped away. Fifteen minutes later she was flying down La Brea.........down that big hill no less......at 80 mph because she was upset and STILL arguing with the boyfriend. Now, an entire family, PLUS two other people are dead because of this dummy. Her name is Nicole Linton she's 37 years old and yes...........................................unfortunately she IS Black. :no:

Over some stupid drama BS. Why can't understand that there are billions of other choices on this planet for mates instead of doing dumb isht over one?
THIS is why I'm a huge advocate of emotional detachment. I'm sorry, but I'm not stressing over what I can't control. :nono2:

It's Los Angeles.  For some strange reason, a few get out there and lose their minds.  Halle Berry was involved in a similar accident, where she ran a stop light, T-bone a vehicle, and kept going or a hit and run. Luckily, no one died in the accident caused by Halle Berry. Also, Brandy was driving a Land Rover on California freeways when she struck a car from behind at 65 mph that killed a woman.  As my attorney friend (Peter Moore -RIP) in Los Angeles would say, "it's completely out of control here."

She was charged with 6 counts of murder charges and 5 counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.  She's being held on a $9 million dollar bail.

It seems like on-going mental health issues will be her argument.
