‘2 Drunk 2 Care’: Girl Tweets Ominous Update Hours Before Causing Fatal Car Crash

At approximately 1:45 am this past Sunday, 20-year-old Kayla Mendoza drove onto the Sawgrass Expressway in Broward County, Florida – driving the wrong way. Soon after, she slammed head-on into another car, killing both people inside.

This incredibly sad story has an interesting social media twist, as a tweet from Mendoza just hours before the fatal crash strongly suggests that she was drunk at the time of the accident. At 11:03 pm Saturday, Mendoza tweeted that she was “2 drunk 2 care.” In less than three hours, she would take the life of two women and land herself in critical condition.

According to the Miami New Times, Mendoza hit a Toyota Camry carrying two women – one of which was pronounced dead at the scene and another who died of her injuries at the hospital. Mendoza herself is still fighting for her life.

It’s clear that Mendoza had a history of publicly broadcasting her exploits via Twitter, and if she does survive, it’s likely that her ominous tweet will be a major factor in any charges she might face.

This story should sound familiar, which is pretty depressing. Last year, a California man died in a brutal wreck moments after tweeting “Drunk af going 120 drifting corners #FuckIt YOLO.”
