Horrific footage shows alleged drunk woman kill at least five, including babies, barreling through red light

A speeding Mercedes that ran a red light, smashing into traffic, created a horrifying and fiery scene on Thursday that unfortunately claimed the lives of at least five people, with seven others sustaining injuries.

The moment of the shocking wreck in California was captured on surveillance footage and paints a frightening picture of a black vehicle racing at high speed through the light.

Among those killed by the flaming pile-up were a pregnant woman and her unborn baby. Seven others are battling various injuries caused by the wreck.

It appears as if the Mercedes didn’t even break before it smashed into an SUV, immediately sparking a fireball mere feet away from highly-flammable gas pumps. The flaming wreckage continued on to hit several other vehicles before coming to a stop.

The driver has been identified as a 40-year-old woman who, after having a fight with her boyfriend, was allegedly drinking at a nearby house. She survived the blazing crash but is in the hospital with serious injuries. Horrifying stories from bystanders detail a chaotic scene, with witness Veronica Esquival explaining how a child in its car seat landed on the ground at the gas station right in front of her.

“I was about to pump gas and all of a sudden, I hear all of the noises from all of the collisions, and then the fire explosion and I saw things, metal and things flying in the air. So, I just covered myself behind the pump,” she recalled. “All of the sudden, a baby literally flew from the middle of the intersection to the middle of the gas station and landed right on the floor in front of me. One of the workers came and saw me with the baby and took the baby out of my hands. Somebody tried to resuscitate the baby, but the baby was gone.”

A reported friend of the Mercedes driver claimed that she clearly didn’t know she was at a red light, because she “shot right through.”

Social media has not been kind to the woman suspected of causing the deadly wreck: (** Language warning)
