Florida Woman Kayla Mendoza Tweets “2 Drunk 2 Care” Before Killing Women

Florida Woman Kayla Mendoza Tweets "2 Drunk 2 Care" Before Killing Women


A Florida woman tweets “2 Drunk 2 Care” before she kills two women. Kayla Mendoza, age 20, who lives in Florida, was driving the wrong way down an expressway Sunday morning about 1:40 a.m. when she crashed her Hyundai Sonata into a Toyota Camry. She ended up killing two people during the process.
The disastrous story has received a rare amount of high press attention in the days since because Mendoza tweeted the following message approximately three hours before the deadly accident happened because of the tweet she sent beforehand: “2 drunk 2 care”.

The Florida Highway Patrol stated that Marisa Catronio, who was driving the Toyota, was declared dead at the scene.

The passenger in the car, Kaitlyn Ferrante, was rushed to Broward Health North, where she later passed away. Mendoza was also taken to the same facility and she still remains there listed in serious condition.

The Hyundai Sonata came upon a another car, which was a Toyota Camry, smashed into the car head-on. The driver of the other car was pronounced dead at the scene, stated a Florida Patrol officer.

Mendoza, meanwhile, called herself a “pot princess” on Twitter and posted a number of pictures on that particular social media site showing marijuana and other drug substances.

However, according to court records, Mendoza has not yet to be charged with any crime. They also show that she once lived in a green colored, one-story house which was in a lower-class neighborhood in Florida. She attended Hallandale High School, and numerous classmates said they remembered her as being a very nice person.

One of the classmates, Richard Vela stated that Mendoza’s friends were basically normal teenagers at the high school. Vela attended classes with Mendoza during the 2011 year which was both their senior year. During high school, he stated that she was responsible with her classes. He was very surprised with the contents of her Twitter account. He said he knew she had probably tried marijuana in the past but that he had no idea it had gotten to the state where it was

She worked as a server at a Coldstone Creamery during her senior year of school, it showed on her Facebook account. Then, she supposedly became a model at Abercrombie & Fitch, but only stayed at that job for about two months. She finally had started working at a MetroPCS, where a family member was a manager.

This job was like the others. It apparently caused Mendoza to have feelings of frustration. When these feelings of boredom came to the surface, she turned to Twitter to express her displeasure at life.

After leaving her MetroPCS job, she began working as a sales rep job at a T-Mobile store. She apparently seemed to have led a somewhat discreet presence of smoking pot and going to work until last weekend.

That Sunday morning, a few hours after tweeting “2 drunk 2 care,” the police say she pulled her Hyundai Sonata on to the expressway going the opposite way of what she should have been, and collided with the Toyota.

A friend who wanted to remain anonymous stated that Kayla would never be the same mentally again. She has lost what nobody can ever get back, and she will have to live with that guilt the rest of her life. That is the worst punishment that can ever be put on a young woman.

May the punishment fit the crime and this Florida woman deserves what punishment she gets.

    Let us pray for both parties involved. True the situation is bad, but we should pray for the families and walk in forgiveness and allow God to judge. As sad as it may seem, people know that when you drive under the influence there comes tragedy. We see this all the time, and yet people refuse to take responsibility for their actions. We all have the right to choose and so lets choose what is right. We should stop relying on the status quo and really take advantage to make the difference in the lives of others. God is our only judge, but as for people, we should understand that forgiveness is really an important part of healing. When we pray we should pray that God have mercy and pray that the one who caused the incident will get the proper help they need. We will all one day be held accountable for our actions and so let our postures be prayer. I pray for both families and pray Gods strength and that we can learn from this experience to be a blessing to someone else who is struggling with some addiction. To God be the glory Amen!

      Huh honey? This is news, regardless of who wrote what. If the article is correct, if the girl drove drunk and killed two people, mind you dear, she is very irresponsible and negligent, don’t you think? And she will and should pay for her “crime,” after all, it is a crime to drive under the influence! It is the public’s business dear. What if this girl, or even me who drove drunk and killed YOU, or your daughter, son, or Mother, or loved one, what would you, or your family think? When one is drunk and driving, they are definitely “too drunk to care.” Think about it sweets and grow up.

    Let her spend life in jail for the killings and stop manufacturing liquor for people to consume. It’s poisoning our society and the world and does nothing but ruin people’s lives.

    as soon as she walks out of the hospital,where she still is I’m sure they will have the correct charges. they are still investigating. she will be cuffed as soon as she walks out. I’m sure they have 24\7 survalence on her

    She chose to get drunk and do whatever else she did as far as drugs, She chose to drive whether she remembers it or not, and she killed two people, so she needs to do the time and get help while she is in there.

      are you serious? She was driving on the other side of the road on the highway let alone, i know Marisa and Katie personally they were out that night but neither was drunk. This self acclaim “pot princess” deserves capital punishment.

        “There weren’t drunk” but there’s still a possibility they drank. I don’t see anybody questioning them. Everybody wants to be a hypocrite like nobody drinks and drives

    With an attitude like that, Mendoza deserves to be tried, found guilty and put away for double murder

    According to a 2012 NTSB study, approximately 350 people are killed in the USA each year in wrong-way driving accidents.
    Wrong-way driving accidents are more deadly than most other types of accidents, because of high speeds and opposite travel directions.
    In 69% of these accidents, the wrong-way driver had a blood alcohol content above the 0.08% limit.
    In 59% of the accidents, blood alcohol was above 0.15%.
