Windsor Hills accident: Woman was on her way to a prenatal check-up with her young son and her boyfriend before the deadly accident

WINDSOR HILLS, Calif. (KABC) — A pregnant woman who died along with her young son and her boyfriend in a Windsor Hills accident caused by a speeding car was on her way to a prenatal doctor’s appointment, her sister said Friday.

Seana Kerr and her family are in complete shock as they try to process the tragic deaths of her older sister Asherey Ryan, her 11-month-old nephew, her sister’s boyfriend, and their unborn child.

“We’re still going through the grieving stages and we’re only at stage one,” Kerr said. “We’re in denial because those things happen in movies. Those things happen one in a million.”

Kerr said his loved ones were killed when a driver in a Mercedes-Benz coupe drove through the intersection of La Brea and Slauson on Thursday.

She said her sister, whom she called “King King,” had just left home and was on her way to her third-trimester checkup when the accident happened.

“He literally walked out the door, because we all live together, and said, ‘Okay, I love you all. I’m going to my doctor’s appointment to see how the baby is doing,'” Kerr said.

Kerr said he offered to babysit Alonzo, but Ryan wanted to take his son for a car ride.

“When I look at my son, I see my nephew,” Kerr said. “My nephew was my son’s first best friend. My nephew was like my son’s brother. All they knew was each other.”

In addition, Kerr said that Reynold Lester, 24, the father of Ryan’s unborn baby, was in the car.

She said that he is one of the murdered victims.

Ryan’s family said Lester was 24 years old and worked as a security guard. Ryan was a housewife and a student, according to her family.

Although Ryan’s family is broken, they lean on their faith to find comfort and peace.

Now they look to the driver of that Mercedes for answers about what led up to the accident.

“On behalf of my family, we forgive you. We are experiencing this terrible loss, but we believe in God and we believe that God does everything for a reason,” Kerr said.

Shortly after 1:30 p.m. Thursday, a Mercedes-Benz sedan ran a red light at high speed and caused the six-car crash near a gas station in Windsor Hills, according to the Highway Patrol. California.

Video showed the Mercedes going through an intersection, hitting at least two cars that exploded into flames and were sent careening onto a sidewalk, ending up against the corner sign for the gas station. A streak of fire led to a car. One vehicle was split in half.

Nicole Lorraine Linton, 37, was detained at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Westwood, the CHP said in a news release Friday.

Charges of grossly negligent vehicular manslaughter will be recommended when the case is brought to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office, the Highway Patrol said.

Ryan’s family has created a GoFundMe Page page to help with funeral expenses as they plan to bury their loved ones.
