The new footage of the crash shows a Mercedes-Benz driving into a traffic jam at high speed and hitting another vehicle that goes up in flames.

The collision reportedly pushed the build-up of vehicles at the gas station.

Linton, a Texas nurse named to NBC by police sources, is currently being treated at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

Police are awaiting her release from hospital and she is expected to be charged Monday with manslaughter and gross negligence, according to TNZT.

Linton reportedly drove at more than 160 km/h.

It is not yet clear whether drugs or alcohol were involved in the accident.

However, an alleged friend told KTLA that she had an argument with her boyfriend and had been drinking before the crash.

Ryan’s unborn child was also one of the victims.

The fetus is counted as an additional fatality “due to rare circumstances,” police told the Los Angeles Times.

It is not clear whether the young mother was involved in the accident in a car.

Two underage men, a man and another woman, were also among the dead, the coroner told The US Sun.

They have not yet been identified.

Eight others, including six children and two adults, were treated in hospital after the crash.

One sustained serious injuries.

An unknown witness claimed that the Mercedes-Benz hit her car as she exited the gas station.

“I got out, got gas,” she told the LA Times.

“Suddenly that Mercedes comes at me… on fire. I didn’t have time to think about it. It hit my car. I swerved, hit the sofa on the side.”

“The flames just went over everyone,” Debra Jackson, one of the victims of the crash, told TNZT LA.

“The flames went all over my car.”

Other witnesses told of the horror of seeing children thrown from vehicles when the cars collided.

“It was seeing the kids, that’s what touched me,” witness Alphonso Ward told TNZT.

“The kids. They never had a chance. Thinking about that mother who was probably happy to have a baby. But she’s gone.”

Another witness, Veronica Esquival, told KTLA that a baby flew toward her from the impact.

“All of a sudden, a baby literally flew from the center of the intersection to the center of the gas station and landed on the ground right 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. Someone tried to resuscitate the baby, but the baby was gone,” she said.
