An ICU nurse in the United States has been charged with six counts of murder and five counts of vehicular manslaughter after a fiery crash left a pregnant mother, her unborn child, one-year-old son and four others dead.

According to an article from the UK's Daily Mail, Nicole Linton, 37, a nurse from Texas who works in Los Angeles, was charged Monday over the crash that killed six and left eight others injured. If convicted, she could face up to 90 years in prison.

Eight-month pregnant Asherey Ryan, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene alongside her one-year-old child Alonzo Luchiano Quintero and her unborn baby boy following the horrible crash.

The unborn child's father, Renald, was also killed in the crash after the car split in half immediately on impact, those close to the family confirmed.

Police said Linton slammed her car into five other vehicles while driving as fast as 100 mph by an intersection at Windsor Hills.

"LA County DA George Gascón revealed during a press conference Monday there was no evidence Linton was under the influence of alcohol during the time of the crash. She was released from the hospital Sunday and is now held at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, California on a $9 million bond," the Daily Mail reports.
