A 20-year-old Floridian, who goes by the moniker “pot princess” on her Twitter description, tweeted “2 drunk 2 care” before allegedly causing a deadly car accident that killed two women in the other car, reports the Miami New Times.
Gary Catronio, father of one of the deceased, was concerned when his daughter missed her 2 am curfew without communicating with him. The crash occurred at 1:45 am. Using the phone tracking app linked to her phone, Catronio saw that his daughter was stopped on the Expressway at 2:11 am. Shortly thereafter he and other family members drove to the deadly scene, which was already surrounded by police.
Kayla Mendoza, who caused the crash, tweeted these messages the day of the accident. Her Twitter account uses a different spelling of her name:
Miami New Times reports Mendoza was taken to the hospital after the crash and is in serious condition. She reportedly hasn’t been charged.
The Miami New Times reports that Mendoza’s family is claiming that their daughter’s Twitter was hacked prior to the crash and, thus, most if not all of her 5,000 tweets were planted. “We can’t say who is hacking her account, but if I knew her password I would shut it down,” cousin Luis Massey said.
Mendoza is in stable condition but the extent of her injuries are still unknown.
