The devastated father of the 11-month-old boy who was killed in a fiery, high-speed crash in Los Angeles last week is demanding justice for his son.
Alonzo Quintero was riding in a car with his eight-months’ pregnant mother, Asherey Ryan, on their way to a prenatal check-up when a travelling nurse allegedly drove through a red light and ran into their car and at least four others last Thursday, killing the baby and his mother, the New York Post reports.
“He had a smile that would brighten up your day no matter what,” Alonzo’s grieving father, Luis Quintero, told ABC 7 LA.
“He was full of joy, very excited. I loved when he gripped his hands, when he would kick his legs from excitement.”
Also in the car with Alonzo and his mother was Ms Ryan’s boyfriend, Reynold Lester, who was also killed in the wreck. Two other women – who have not been publicly identified – were also killed.
The 37-year-old nurse, Nicole Lorraine Linton, was charged with six counts of murder on Monday over the deadly wreck. Mr Quintero said through sobs he hopes “justice is made”.
Ms Linton has been in 13 other car wrecks, including one in 2020 that left two cars totalled, the Los Angeles Times reported. Prosecutors claimed that she knew she was a potential danger when she was behind the wheel.
Ms Linton’s lawyer said in court that his client has a history of “profound mental health issues” that could be linked to the collision, but did not elaborate, according to the Times.
