Franco Pepi, the officer in charge of the case, indicated that the scene seemed like a “war zone” due to the parts of the vehicles that were scattered through the streets as a result of the impact of the accident. (YO)
This is so scary. Rest In Peace to the 6 lives lost. Driving is probably one of the most dangerous things we do. I hope Nicole Lorraine Linton never has a moment of tranquility ever again. She needs to rot in prison for life. https://t.co/pG2qoEqiPr
