A Miami woman who allegedly drove the wrong way on a highway while intoxicated, causing the deaths of two people, had sent out a tweet stating that she was “2 drunk 2 care” shortly before the accident.

Kaila Mendoza, age 20, had a twitter account @hiimkaila (since deleted) in which she proclaimed herself the “Pothead Princess.”

From CBS Miami:

Troopers said Ferrante was in the car with her friend, 21-year-old Marisa Catronio along Sawgrass Expressway when they were hit by Mendoza. Catronio, who was sitting in the Camry’s front passenger seat, was killed on impact, according to her father, Gary Catronio…

Kayla Mendoza, 20, was heading east in her Hyundai Sonata in the westbound lanes of the expressway when she collided with the Toyota Camry driven by Ferrante just west of University Drive around 1:45 a.m., according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Kaitlyn Nicole Ferrante suffered from severe head injuries in the accident and was kept on life support while in the hospital, according to Florida Highway Patrol. Thursday morning she was pronounced dead…

Mendoza’s Twitter handle was @highimkaila and in the description, she’s described as the “pothead princess.”

Mendoza had previously tweeted thoughts like, “Can’t deal with people that don’t have their *expletive* together,” and a picture of a hand holding what appears to be a marijuana cigarette.

On November 12, Mendoza tweeted, “2 high 2 care,” and on November 2, “I really am so baked right now.” The tweets were difficult for Marisa’s family to read.
