    The nurse accused of killing five people last week when her Mercedes plowed into traffic at a busy Windsor Hills intersection had been involved in 13 previous crashes, Los Angeles County prosecutors alleged Monday in charging her with murder. Authorities revealed new details about Thursday’s crash and about the driver, Nicole Lorraine Linton, 37, whose permanent address is in Texas and who is currently renting a room in Los Angeles while working as a traveling registered nurse. Prosecutors said they are reviewing multiple previous crashes linked to Linton — both in and out of California — including one in 2020 that involved bodily injury in which two cars were totaled. They provided few additional details, however. Linton’s attorney, Halim Dhanidina, asked the court Monday to continue her arraignment to October because he is reviewing her out-of-state history of “documented profound mental health issues.” Dhanidina did not elaborate on those issues but said the Windsor Hills crash could be linked to them.

    Anne Heche crashed her car into a Los Angeles residence at a high speed on Friday—but less than half an hour before, she had stopped into Glass Hair Design in Venice to buy a bright red wig, according to the Los Angeles Times. Heche is currently in “extreme critical condition,” as more details surrounding the actress’ movements in the lead-up to the fiery accident are revealed. It is unknown why Heche was at the salon around 10:35 a.m. Friday, but owner Richard Glass described her as “very pleasant” and acting like “a sweet little girl.” The 53-year-old actress hadn’t appeared to be “speaking in cursive”—either intoxicated or high—Glass said. Still, the shop owner added that the encounter had been “so strange.” At one point, Heche grabbed his face and “cuddled it,” the Times reported. The newspaper noted that, in a photo of Heche in her Mini Cooper shared by TMZ shortly after the crash, which occurred just before 11 a.m., strands of bright red hair appear to be on the passenger seat next to her. ...

Nicole Lorraine Linton, 37, is accused of reckless disregard for life in connection with Thursday’s multi-vehicle crash.

    A disgraced property developer has agreed to pay $18.85 million to the family of a  woman struck and killed by his 17 year-old son doing 100mph in a Lamborghini he'd been bought for his birthday.  Brandon Khuri, the driver of the vehicle and the son of real estate mogul James Khuri, was racing the $200,000 Urus in a 35-mph zone on a West Los Angeles freeway, when he crashed into a Lexus driven by Monique Muñoz, 32. The settlement, revealed on Thursday, is one of the largest amounts for a single plaintiff in a wrongful death case in California history, according to the family's lawyer.  Khuri was condemned as one of America's most irresponsible fathers after his son slaughtered Muñoz. His killer son was sentenced to just seven to nine months in a juvenile camp, and four months probation. Astonishingly, the arrogant multi-millionaires even suggested Khuri be allowed to serve his sentence at home confinement inside their luxury mansion.   'Today is a significant milestone because the Muñoz family can finally get some closure for this horrific tragedy,'' attorney Daniel Ghyczy said in...

Eduardo Moreno, 46, pleaded guilty in December to committing a terrorist attack and other violence against railroad carriers and mass transportation systems in connection with the incident, which came as the Mercy was docked in L.A. to relieve healthcare systems strained by skyrocketing COVID-19 cases in the early weeks of the pandemic. In addition to his prison sentence, Moreno was ordered to pay over $755,000 in restitution for the damage caused by the derailment, according to the U.S. attorney’s office for the Central District of California.
