The new footage of the crash shows a Mercedes-Benz slamming into a traffic jam at rapid speed, striking another vehicle, which erupted in flames.
The collision reportedly pushed the pileup of vehicles onto the gas station.
The Mercedes-Benz was driven by a 40-year-old woman who was being treated at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, CBS Los Angeles reports.
She has been arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter and gross negligence, according to CBS.
Ryan's unborn child was also among the victims.
The fetus is counted as an additional fatality “due to rare circumstances,” police told the Los Angeles Times.
It is not clear if the young mom was in a car involved in the crash.

They have not yet been identified.
Eight others, including six kids and two adults, were treated at the hospital after the crash.
One suffered major injuries.
An unidentified witness claimed that the Mercedes-Benz hit her car as she was leaving the gas station.
“I was getting out, had got gas,” she told the LA Times.
“All of a sudden that Mercedes is coming at me on ... fire. I didn’t have any time to think about it. It hit my car. I veered, hit the bench on the side.”
"The flames just went over everybody," added Debra Jackson, one of the victims in the crash, told CBS LA.
"The flames went over my whole car."
Other witnesses told of the horror of seeing children flung from vehicles as the cars collided.
"It was seeing the kids, that's what got to me," witness Alphonso Ward told CBS.
“The children. They never had a chance. Thinking about that mother who was probably happy to be having a baby. But she's gone.”
Another witness, Veronica Esquival, told KTLA that a baby came flying toward her from the collision.
"All of the sudden, a baby literally flew from the middle of the intersection to the middle of the gas station and landed right on the floor in front of me,” Esquival said.
“One of the workers came and saw me with the baby and took the baby out of my hands. Somebody tried to resuscitate the baby, but the baby was gone,” she said.Read More on The US SunKIMYE FOREVER?
