Girl Tweets '2 Drunk 2 Care' Before Allegedly Killing 2 Women in Horrific Car Accident

Horrifying 65

A young woman tweeted, "2 Drunk 2 Care" just hours before allegedly crashing her car into another in Florida and killing the two passengers inside because she was going the wrong way on the Sawgrass Expressway. Kayla Mendoza is 20 -- so we can't quite blame her recklessness on her youth anymore. But to peruse her Twitter account -- she changed her name slightly so that it reads "Kaila," goes by the moniker "pothead princess," and can be reached "@highimkaila" -- is to get a disturbing glimpse into the drug and alcohol obsession of a girl who, judging by just her posts on one social media site, seems to be screaming for help.

The whole story is just horrendous, from start to finish. This young girl reportedly struck the other car sometime around 1:45 a.m. Sunday morning, immediately killing Marisa Catronio, the driver. Her friend and the passenger in her car, Kaitlyn Ferrant, died later in the hospital, and Mendoza was also taken to the hospital and is in serious condition. 

I'm not saying there was any way for anyone else to help prevent this horrific accident from occurring, but if I were this girl's friend or a relative of hers and I saw her Twitter account and photos, I would have tried to intervene in some way. Her excessive boasting about being drunk and loving drugs isn't cute or typical -- it goes beyond the pale.

Here are some examples of her Tweets:

 2 High 2 Care

Can't sleep without my bedtime blunt.

I have a test at 8am, why am I drunk right now

My car permanently smell like weed

Jeez, way to incriminate yourself. I remember being that age and laughing about drinking and being drunk on occasion. I also don't have an issue with recreational pot smoking, but if 80 percent of your posts revolve around being high or drunk, you may want to take a look at what's happening in your life.

And this story also brings up another interesting point: do we have a responsibility to take friends' social media posts seriously? How seriously? Did any of her friends see her tweet and, knowing she was about to get in a car, choose not to say anything? 

I hope the families of these poor women who lost their lives find peace and that this young woman gets some help in addition to whatever penalties she deserves to face as a result of her reckless behavior.

Do you think this woman's tweets were a call for help?

Yes...she was obviously hurting. People that are in need tend to self-medicate and the consequences are irrelevant to them at that point, they are so far gone.

 my soon to be ex b-i-l posts stuff like this on FB all the time and sees nothing wrong with it.  It's really scary because my sis and him are planning to do joint custody and he'll put my nephew in jeopardy.

Nekoyukidoll, have your sister pull up his page and print copies of this stuff( you know just incase he tries to delete it) and then have her pull up the page at her attorney's office for them to look over. I learned the hard way when it comes to custody battles you never trust the other person to follow on a concentual agreement. If she hasn't got an attorney yet then she needs one immediately.

What a tragic end of two innocent women by someone who desperatly need someone to step in and help her. Prayers to the family and friends of the lost souls.

The problem with most 20 year olds like this is the simple fact that everyone just gets a slap on the wrist now for the most heinous of crimes. Of course she thought she could get away with it! She wasn't crying out for help, she was being irresponsible and stupid. I was nearly killed by a drunk driver. I'd still like to punch him in the face, and this woman just got added to the list. These people simply DO NOT CARE about ANYONE but themselves. The sooner those of you crying "oh she needed help" learn this, the better for everyone. Get your heads out of the sand.

I agree a waste of space. Prison for Natural life, dying in there.. Or Electric chair is what she deserves.  Let her lose some limbs in this hospital and come out having to go to prison for the rest of her life. Let her suffer for what she has done.  The families of the people she killed don't even get to see their family members with missing limbs.  U can think I am mean but ANYONE who does this stuff PURPOSLY deserves NO SYMPATHY.

The people I feel sorry for are the family of the two ladies killed by this thoughtless, uncaring girl.  I do not feel sorry for this girl.  Depression or no, she's still a killer.  The choices she made that ended the lives of innocent people are hers and  hers alone.  The world can not and should not be policing others and their actions.  It's about damned time that people started taking responsability for their own actions. It's not someone elses fault. It's not because you weren't loved as a child.  It was ALL her, baby.
