Windsor Hills accident: Relatives pay tribute to Lynette Noble, a woman who died in a burning car accident
WINDSOR HILLS, Calif. (KABC) — Family and friends gathered on Friday afternoon to remember their loved one, who died in a horrific accident in Windsor Hills that killed six, including a pregnant woman.
The sidewalk at the intersection of La Brea and Slauson Avenues was covered with flowers, balloons and portraits for Lynette Noble, 38.
It was at that intersection where prosecutors said a traveling nurse from Texas drove a Mercedes-Benz at 90 miles per hour, ran a red light and got into cars at a crowded intersection on Aug. 4. Victims were thrown from cars and several vehicles caught fire.
Noble died alongside her best friend, Nathesia Lewis.

“She was everything to us,” said Noble’s aunt, Sheila Noble.
The driver suspected of causing the fiery accident, Nicole Lorraine Linton, was charged last week with six counts of murder and five counts of manslaughter with gross negligence. A murder charge was brought over the pregnant woman’s unborn child.

The 37-year-old Houston traveling nurse could face 90 years to life in prison if convicted on all charges.
The crash killed 23-year-old Asherey Ryan, her 11-month-old son Alonzo Quintero, and her boyfriend Reynold Lester.

Lewis was burned so badly that family members had to use DNA to identify her. A GoFundMe page was started so Lewis could pay for her funeral and help her children.
The affected families are still trying to understand the tragedy.
Lovers gathered at the intersection on Friday released doves in honor of Noble, whom they named Lady Red.
“Lynette was a great person. She was one of a kind,” said Robbie Cross. “Everyone loved her in their own way.”
