2 drunk 2 care tweet draws attention to fatal crash

A 20-year-old Florida woman involved in a car crash that claimed the lives of two other women might have been under the influence when the crash happened. Now, almost a week later, the case is gaining national attention.

It all has to do with a shocking post driver Kaila Mendoza left on her Twitter account over the weekend. (Via ABC)

Late Saturday night, the self-described "pothead princess" tweeted "2 drunk 2 care" only about two hours before allegedly being involved in the crash. (Via Twitter / @highimkaila)

The two victims have been identified as Marisa Catronio and Kaitlyn Ferrante. They were struck head-on when they were on their way home early Sunday morning. (Via WTVJ)

WZTV reports one victim's father got worried after his daughter missed curfew. He found his daughter's car on the expressway after tracing it with a GPS device.

Now friends of the two victims have gathered to remember them. On Thursday, Ferrante's family held a memorial. Both of her parents attended. Just one day earlier, family and friends attended a wake for Catronio. (Via WPLG)

But the woman believed to be the reason behind the crash survived. Other tweets on her feed describe illegal drug and alcohol use. (Via WKRN)

One recent post made a couple days before the crash said, "I break all my bongs cuz I have butter fingers." Mendoza has also posted pictures of marijuana online and talked about her own underage drinking. (Via Twitter / @highimkaila)

So far authorities haven't pressed charges because they're still waiting for toxicology results to confirm if Mendoza was actually drunk when the crash happened.

  • A woman is arrested for child endangerment after her young son is found wandering through an apartment complex. We're told Jana Clem had forgotten to lock the door after she took her prescription medications Thursday at the Chapel Ridge Apartments. Someone called Rogers County deputies after finding the 4-year old alone. Clem said she didn't realize that the boy had left their apartment.
  • A Tulsa man is dead after pointing a gun at a police officer during a traffic stop. We're told 52-year old Joshua Daniels was shot early Thursday near Neosho, Missouri after he tried to drive away from a police traffic stop for a second time. Neosho police say Daniels may have been intoxicated.
  • Rogers County deputies are investigating the report of a woman leaving her two children inside a parked car during the day Thursday. We're told Crystal Shell had left the car operating with the air conditioner on and parked at the county courthouse. Deputies informed her that, even so, her actions were too dangerous. When deputies ran an identity check on Shell, she was arrested for having outstanding warrants.
  • Yes, the airlines are taking what many agree is well-deserved flack lately, but passengers are not all angels. The Telegraph reports that flight attendants list some of passengers’ most annoying traits on a Facebook group. Those traits include taking forever to decide what drink you want (especially when you've seen the cart coming down the aisle for 10 minutes). Physically poking a flight attendant to get their attention, instead of just saying, 'excuse me,' is a major annoyance. Asking to borrow a pen for customs forms doesn’t go over well. And handing flight attendants, tissues, toothpicks, and (believe it or not) dirty diapers, actually happens. Put 'em in the barf bag, attendants say. You can read more about the story from the Telegraph here.
  • A rare baby Amur tiger cub at a zoo in Philadelphia was neglected by its mother after its birth earlier this month. The cub named Zoya, which means 'life' in Russian, is being sent to the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden. Zoya will integrate with a tiger cub litter there. The Philadelphia Zoo says 10-year-old Koosaka gave birth July 10 to a litter of five cubs.  Two were stillborn and one was accidentally injured by the mother and died.  The zoo says the mother never showed maternal behavior toward the remaining cubs and they were moved to the zoo's animal hospital, where the fourth died. Amur tigers, also called Siberian tigers, are endangered in the wild. They're found in eastern Russia and northeastern China.
