The final two female victims in the fiery Los Angeles crash that killed six people, including a mother and her unborn child, after an ICU nurse plowed through a red light have been identified.
Lynette Noble, 38, and Nathesia Lewis, 42, were identified by their families and friends, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The pair were killed on August 4 when Nicole L. Linton, 37, ploughed her Mercedes straight into traffic about ten miles south-west of downtown LA. She was driving at 90mph and sliced one of the victims' cars in half, sending the baby in his car seat flying into the air.
Noble and Lewis were driving together when their car instantly burst into flames, family members told the Times. The bodies of the two weren't immediately identified due to severe trauma.
While the identification of the bodies are pending verification from the county coroner, Personal belongings and identification leading to Noble were found in the burnt car, family and friends say, according to reports.
The other victims included a pregnant woman, her boyfriend, the woman's one-year-old son, and her unborn child.

Nea Irby was hanging out with Noble and Lewis the day they were killed. Irby, who is close friends with Noble, was driving separately from the two. She drove pass the intersection of the crash minutes before the accident. When she went back, she saw the fiery collision.
'I just thought it was a tragic accident,' Irby said.
'If I would have known it was Lynette, I would have turned my car around and went back to stay right there until they put out the fire. It's been bothering me. I just have this vision in my head of this car on fire and to have found out that it was her is hard.'
At a vigil a few miles from the crash, Krystal Lewis, Nathesia's sister, told the Times that her sister left behind seven children.
'She loved unconditionally,' Krystal said at the vigil. 'It's devastating. Like, everybody feels bad because it was so unexpected. When I saw the crash, I didn't think that it was anybody I knew.'

Nathesia's boyfriend, Clarence Hamlin, recalled her as being 'loving and caring.' Hamlin painted a mural of his late girlfriend on the side of her sister's beauty salon.
'Everyone knows that she would have done anything for a stranger or someone in the community,' Hamlin said. 'Maybe she was that way because her mother died when she was young.'
The day of the fatal crash, Hamlin didn't know he lost his girlfriend in the fiery blaze. He rushed to call her and her friends after she didn't come home that night, but was left with unanswered questions.
It wasn't until days later when he knew Nathesia was dead that the news began to break him. He recalls walking at night and believing to have seen her, prompting him to run towards her. As he got near, he realized it was just an illusion.

Driver Nicole Linton, an ICU nurse from Texas who works in Los Angeles, was charged with six counts of murder on August 8, and if convicted, could face up to 90 years in prison.
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, previously on a $9 million bond.
Gascón said Linton was traveling at speeds of at least 90mph when she sped through a read light and hit crossing vehicles at the busy intersection of La Brea and Slauson Avenues.
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, Reynold Lester, was also killed in the crash after the car split in half immediately on impact, those close to the family confirmed.
Asherey, Reynold, and little Alonzo were on their way to a doctor's appointment for a pregnancy check-up when Linton smashed into the car they were traveling in.
'A young family was destroyed in the blink of an eye,' Gascón said Monday. 'There’s catastrophic damage to the families and friends of those killed and injured.
'It’s not only a tremendous loss to their families, but to our entire community, who learned of this incredible tragedy who watched the now viral video of the collision.'

Linton, who is now an ICU nurse, worked in a strip club and had a history of threatening suicide following bad break-ups. She suffered from mental health after her lover died in 2017.
She planned on marrying Germaine Mason, the Olympic silver medalist, before he was killed in a motorcycle crash, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed.
‘When I saw what had happened in LA the first thing that went through my mind was that she had argued with her boyfriend and was drunk and trying to commit suicide,' a source close to Linton said.
‘She had threatened to do it before. I thought maybe this time she had gone through with it.’
Her attorneys have argued that she has a ‘profound history’ of mental illness.

Cowboys Sign Two Free Agents After Starter Suffers Season-Ending Injury
Getty Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy looks on during an NFL game.
The Dallas Cowboys are apparently in the free agency market after the team’s latest injury news requires the team to bring in new blood.
It’s never easy to navigate the injury bug, but the Cowboys have done exceptionally well this season. The team is 3-1 despite injuries to players like quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver James Washington and corner Jourdan Lewis.
However, the latest injury comes at a surprising position: long snapper. According to DallasCowboys.com writer Nick Eatman, Cowboys long snapper Jake McQuaide has suffered a serious arm injury and is likely done for the 2022 season.
“Veteran deep snapper Jake McQuaide is likely out for the season with a torn triceps injury,” Eatman Tweeted on October 4. “The Cowboys worked out some snappers today, possibly signing to the practice squad.”
It’s a tough break for McQuaide, who has been on the Dallas roster since the beginning of the 2021 season. Now, Dallas has added two players to the practice squad in order to mitigate the loss.Cowboys Sign Two Veteran Free Agents
After Eatman’s initial report on McQuaide’s triceps injury, NFL media insider Tom Pelissero Tweeted out that the team has already decided on their two free agency additions.
“The #Cowboys are signing long snappers Matt Overton and Tucker Addington to the practice squad after Jake McQuaide suffered a torn triceps that likely will sideline him for the season, per sources,” Pelissero posted on October 4.
Overton is the most recognizable of the two names, as he has been long snapping in the NFL for nine seasons and has played for the Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Chargers.
As for Addington, he is trying to stake his claim for an NFL roster spot. Addington attended Sam Houston in college before being selected by the Houston Gamblers in the 2022 USFL draft.
On the surface, it seems like Overton is the favorite for the position based on his veteran experience. However, he hasn’t held down the job long-term in recent years, as the Titans and Chargers both moved on after one season with the veteran.
Either way, whoever steps in will have big holes to fill, as McQuaide is missing game time for the first time in his 12-season NFL career.McQuaide Comes to Dallas After Rams Tenure
Being a long snapper in the NFL isn’t easy, as minor mistakes or misses in execution aren’t really acceptable. Blown field goals or botched punts are killers for any NFL team, and that’s why McQuaide’s career is fairly exceptional.
From the 2011 season through the 2020 season, McQuaide was the Los Angeles Rams’ long snapper. That’s 160 regular season games according to Pro Football Reference, and that alone is proof that McQuaide is very good at his job.
After 10 seasons in St. Louis and Los Angeles, McQuaide parted ways with the Rams organization and joined up with the Cowboys. He was the snapper in all 18 games of the 2021 season, and had continued that streak through this year’s first four games.
Now, McQuaide will have to see if he can recover in time for the end of the season, but it appears unlikely.
