Kayla MendozaHallandale Beach, FL – Kayla Mendoza, 20, tweeted “2 drunk 2 care” before she allegedly driving down the wrong side of the road and causing a deadly car accident that killed two women.

Three hours after Mendoza made that tweet, she drove her vehicle the wrong way down the Sawgrass Expressway at 1:45 a.m. Sunday morning. She ended up plowing into another vehicle head-on, killing best friends, Kaitlyn Ferrante and Marisa Catronio, both 21-years-old.

Catronio was pronounced dead at the scene while Ferrante was taken to the hospital and died two days later. Mendoza was taken to the hospital where she was last listed in fair condition. Police are waiting for a toxicology report before deciding what charges will be filed against her.

“It is unknown at this time if Mendoza was driving under the influence,” said Sgt. Mark Wysocky of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Not helping Mendoza right now are the series of tweets she’s made to her “pothead princess” Twitter account in the days and hour before the fatal collision. Mendoza makes multiple references to being drunk or high, including pictures of her weed. For example:

If you thought Mendoza tweeting out her illegal activities to the public was stupid, check out one of her friend’s tweets in response to people talking bad about Mendoza. She believes that it was Catronio’s and Ferrante’s destiny to die that night because of a moron driving on the wrong side of the road:

Man Lives After Setting Self On Fire At Gas Station, Cutting Throat With Ice Scraper

If this story wasn’t tragic enough,  Catronio’s father lived a parent’s worst nightmare that night when he arrived on the scene of the accident after using an app that tracked his daughter’s cellphone. She did not make her 2 a.m. curfew and would not answer her phone, so he and other family members went looking for her.

If there is any silver lining to this story, it’s that Ferrante’s heart was donated. “This morning they took her heart and she gave her heart to someone else,” Ferrante’s mother told WPLG Thursday. “She saved a life and now they are breathing and alive because of Kaitlyn.”

    Why does drunk driving render people invincible? If there was ever proof life isn’t fair, this is it.

  • brandi

    2 drunk 2 care if you killed anyone….

  • t3chsupp0rt

    Fucked up that there are people like this in the world. Even more fucked up that there’s someone to defend these people when they take lives while acting like idiots. I’m sure they’ll all think she’s really cool in prison…

  • DeweyCheatam

    I’ll bet this see you next Tuesday won’t do any jail time. IMO these type of criminals rarely do. I really hope she is devastated out of her idiotic behavior and makes her life count for something …. but by the looks of her and judging by the company she’s keeping, I’m thinking she may be more like that fucktard in Montana who killed a family and then had the balls to sue them.

  • bigcced

    Boy … if this proves anything other than the fact that it’s really hard to kill a relaxed drunk – it’s that stupid ass people have stupid ass friends.The ole Birds of a feather saying continues to be shown as correct.

  • Brent Williams

    I’m a total believer in ‘pre-destiny’, so I almost accept the friend’s comment. But the fact remains it WAS Kayla behind the wheel. I think the more accurate picture of fate to be painted is that Kayla’s lifestyle and series of choices made her destined to be fucked up behind the wheel of a car going the wrong way on the Sawgrass. I think every decision you make in your life even at a very young age leads you on a path you’re predestined to lead because you make those choices based on who you are, and therefore, would not and could not have chosen differently. With that in mind, the friend’s comment really should have said, “If it wasn’t Kaitlyn & Marisa, it would have been somebody else.” As it was only a matter of time for Kayla’s choices to inevitably lead to another’s misfortune as well as her own.

  • Teleute

    Disgusting human being. Why is it always the innocent ones who die? Those two girls she killed were beautiful.

    And her friend’s comment was unforgivable. I sincerely hope it gets retweeted to the point of going viral and then follows her for the rest of her life.

  • Evan

    mendoza should be sentenced to death but crash dummy research.

  • Libralady100776

    There will be a special place in hell for her. What a piece of shit! Of course people like her will go on living her sad pathetic life while these two people are dead.

  • itsknotme

    It’s events like this that reminds me to always tell my sons that “I love them” before they say goodbye.

  • Fatal Error

    Dude, every post you make is just you trying WAY too hard to be funny, which you aren’t whatsoever. If you must reply to every article, at least have something useful to contribute, since you obviously fail at humor.

  • BrittBrittRoss

    2 Dumb 2 live…

  • Evan

    eh, different strokes for different folks, FatalError

  • Buffettgirl

    Good thing we all know Evan and appreciate him, just as he is “Dude”…

  • Buffettgirl

    “I’m pretty, I’m young and I’m entitled to do what I want…” fucking spoiled brat. How’d driving drunk work out for you this time Kayla?

  • shadough

    This whole thing sickens me. And the friend who believes in destiny sums up these idiots nicely – “I don’t have to take responsibility for my actions because what’s gonna happen is gonna happen”

  • Taster’sChoice

    Her friend’s comment was *almost* as stupid as this one, actually. If this dumb bitch didn’t kill the innocent people, my guess is this would have never happened to them at all and they would still be alive today. and tomorrow and for a lot fucking longer than they will be now… But you’re entitled to yours. They are like assholes after all; everyone has one.

  • Megan Stokes Abdin

    I missed that one about montana. Is it on dreamin demon?

  • Dre Mosley

    The girl who made that “destiny” tweet should have her brain studied. We need to get to the bottom of how she’s that stupid.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    She’ll probably get a slap on the wrist. She’s physically pretty, and she probably comes from a family with money, if she’s able to drink and drug and tweet about it while she’s supposed to be going to college. She’ll be able to buy or blow her way out of jail with no problem.

  • Fran Johnson

    how on earth can you say this was destiny ???, Destiny is something that happens with no help from human intervention, destiny happens because of destiny itself, this is MURDER by selfishness and was the fault of a selfish, drunken young pot head who didn’t care about anything including herself, and because of her selfishness she has caused 2 young ladies to loose their lives, I hope they throw the book at her and she is given 2 life sentences, I also hope her conscience plagues and torments her everyday for the rest of her life, as this will surely haunt and plague the families that have been left behind with hearts than can never be mended

  • LuluMontegut

    Hmm, thats odd, cause i have always found Evan to be funny.

    At least he dosent whip out the good old trusty “OMG U FAIL” insult.

    Failing and Shaming are sooooo last year.

  • Oh, I don’t know. FL is one of the states with DUI murder convictions, and she killed not one but two lovely young ladies. In 2012, FL sentenced a millionaire to 16 years after being convicted of murder in the drunk driving death of a 23-year-old man.

    It’ll be interesting to see what charges get filed, here.

  • Buffettgirl

    Not being a bitch here, but if we didn’t have the system in place that we do, there would be NO protection for those that are actually wrongfully accused. It sucks that a reprehensible bitch like this is entitled to the same justice someone that is wrongfully accused is, but that’s better by far than to have people rotting in prison when they are innocent. This bitch needs to have a “Come to Jesus meeting” with a sledgehammer though, in my not so humble opinion… This “c” word is 2 selfish 2 breathe if you ask me… (fuck I HATE text speak!)

  • Truffle the Cat

    Too bad it isn’t ‘2 dead 2 care’ for her and not her victims.

  • Truffle the Cat

    Unfortunately people like her don’t care when their actions lead to another person’s death. I knew a girl in highschool who intentionally drove recklessly which caused the death of her passenger, she only got a slap wrist and a brand new car from daddy.

  • Dirk

    It’s not destiny because destiny is a fiction.

  • Brent Williams

    Did you actually read my comment?

  • DeweyCheatam
  • patrickdh10

    Two beautiful girls with their whole lives ahead of them snuffed out by some tawdry drunk. How many times are we going to read this? A law should be passed that If you drink alcohol then a breathalyzer should be installed in your car,mandatory. Failure to represent the truth and admit this when your license is renewed results in a month in jail,mandatory. With substantially increasing penalties for additional violations. Tamper with the device or assist someone to get their car started,a Class B Felony. If you’ve been drinking and your breath says your over .02 or .04 then your car doesn’t start. Simple as that. So whacko’s like Killa Mendoza are off the road. As for that insensitive nut job Amanda, she can shove her rationalizing imbecilic stupidity right up her cu-hoe.

  • Taster’sChoice

    Yup. Thanks for checking back just the same though.

  • Brent Williams

    Apparently the concept of habitual impulsive and irresponsible decision making having long term and severe ramifications is something that’s lost to you.

  • Taster’sChoice

    If you say so, but welcome to the group anyway. Lol

  • Tenbux

    I think you picked the wrong post to say that to. You can’t tell me that the world wouldn’t be a better place if Kayla Mendoza got ejected from her vehicle and her cell phone somehow snapped one last selfie similar to the attached image as it and Kayla flew through the air on their way to meet the concrete test chamber wall.

  • Why should I have to suffer the extra cost and trouble of such a device simply because a relatively small percentage of the population lacks self control? That kind of flies in the face of this concept we like to call the United States.

  • t3chsupp0rt

    I’m not talking about her lawyers, I’m talking about her dipshit friend.

  • Buffettgirl

    Sorry – clearly I spent too many years working for attorneys… I saw “defend” and went all legal. My bad! 😉

  • patrickdh10

    I don’t believe so. Driving has already been legally ruled a privilege not a right. So this concept in no way circumvents your existing freedoms. Consider it a safety device like on a weapon. There were around 1100 accidental gun deaths last year and 10,322 drunk driving deaths. With all the gadgets already on or available for cars especially new cars do you really think the expense or the trouble wouldn’t be worth it. Besides if you don’t drink then it’s a moot point.

    Have you actually ridden in a car with a breathalyzer installed?

  • mean birch

    Shut up! Don’t pick on evan. Dont make that fatal error

  • mean birch

    Oh geez. Way off!

  • Savanah Mick

    You got a lot of downvotes. I guess I’m one of the few with reading comprehension here, either that or there are FAR too many people who still think there are no consequences to drunk driving. That they can keep doing it because “this won’t happen to them.” Idiotic mindset. I agree with you though that it was only a matter of time for KAILA’s bad choices to end in tragedy.

  • Evan

    I probably should post less – that way i don’t force funny. BTW are you a pitbull FatalError? If so stop sniffing my nuts. (pit bites off 5y.o. nuts::: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/11/25/dog-bite-mutilation/3698559/

  • mean birch

    I love forceful humor… Great article, sad for victims tho…

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Throw her in a jail cell. When she asks for alcohol, bring her methanol to drink. When she asks for pot, bring her pot cut with oleander and brugmansia leaves.
    An entitled brat like her is going to think prison is like a motel and that she can demand what she wants from the prison guards as if they were like maids. She’s going to find things are very, very different when she gets her first blisters from breaking rocks. Or when big Bertha happens upon her purdy face.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    She needs her brain kicked in. It should be painful to be that stupid.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    Now why you wanna go pickin’ on Evan? YOUR post makes you sound like a petulant fool. Be nice or go away.

  • Andrea Pizzuto

    She made her actions known, she got wasted. She took lives because she couldn’t call a fucking friend, or a cab.

  • Jessie

    What a dumb cunt. “Look at my boobs everyone! I’m so hot, I love myself.” At least she’s an adult. See ya beeeeotch.

  • sweekymom

    From your mouth to God’s ears. No matter what they do with her, ain’t gonna be any justice for the families of those two girls.

  • Brent Williams

    I was baffled by the downvotes too. Either people are reading and comprehending at a sub-elementary school level, or don’t like the idea that choices they make bear consequences. I really think it’s the former given that nobody who has disagreed has mustered an intelligible response.

  • Serendipity

    As dumb as this bitch was to get behind the wheel of a car totally fucked up, her friends were at least as stupid to get in the car with her. No one made the right call.

  • Brent Williams

    I can’t even begin to wrap my head around the backward logic this girl is using to defend her friend; how dense.

  • t3chsupp0rt

    So they’ll be driving her to guzzle toilet water, cuz that’s all she’s going to have available in that little room.

  • t3chsupp0rt

    Oh and get this – you’re going to love it….

    Her family is saying… that her twitter account was HACKED! None of this is her posting! HAHAHAHAHA. Her family is apparently a bunch of stupid assholes, too.

    And trying to blame the victims.

    Thing is, even if the victims had been drinking, they apparently weren’t the ones who left their own lane to wander into the oncoming traffic.

  • t3chsupp0rt

    They weren’t in her car…

  • Serendipity

    Ach, I was confused by the wording of the article. I thought they were her “best friends” and therefore her passengers.

  • Brent Williams

    The apple falls not far from the tree…

  • fugly17

    Yeah. I think they just can’t read 🙂

  • Der Mac

    They probably don’t want to read another self-indulgent essay belaboring a simple point.

  • I’m willing to bet none of those 10 got past the first sentence. Although, people also over-value the concept of free will which, as you essentially explained, is practically negated by an accurate concept like pre-destiny.

  • Heh, God hasn’t been entertaining my whispers for awhile, now. If only I could get close enough to seductively lick an earlobe… that might get his attention.

  • I realize that driving is a privilege and not a right. But the concept of freedom applies, as it is government that regulates this sort of thing. Of course, the concept even exists in private markets.

    No, I don’t believe the expense and the trouble would be worth it. What do you actually know about interlock ignition devices? Do you know that you have to blow frequently throughout a trip? That they require calibration and maintenance (which costs money)? That they can falsely alert? It’s hardly a moot point if you don’t drink.

    Luckily, the powerful automotive industry would never allow such a consideration. Luckily still, you don’t need the government to mandate it. You can purchase and install one yourself. So, please, after you. Drive with one for a year and get back to me.

  • Brent Williams

    This I can abide.

  • Buffettgirl

    It can be dangerous to blow into that device, maintain the “blow” and operate your vehicle at the same time. The two times I’ve been with my friend Jeremy in his truck this past year we’ve almost wrecked. It felt more dangerous than being in the car with someone that is texting and driving….

  • Aussie Sabbath

    I hope it stops her from getting her dream job or admission to university.
    Although someone that thick isn’t likely to be going to Harvard anytime soon. I think flipping burgers at Macca’s or picking up rubbish might be testing her mental capacity.

    I wonder if this stupid selfish cunt cares now?

  • LeaveMeBe

    Quick question, Goddess. Are we not allowed to actually use the word cunt on the FP or are there just a lot of people on here nowadays that are uncomfortable spelling it out? I just want to make sure I am not violating any new rules because I have seen variations of the word but no outright use of it besides my own vulgar comment.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Oh! Another enabler… I mean, friend.

  • newstarshipsmell

    That’s just how some people reflexively post. A lot of sites impose filters on their comments sections, which will block/place in moderation queue any/all comments that contain particular strings in them. So people avoid spelling commonly filtered words correctly in a preemptive effort to avoid being censured to begin with. And you’re a cunt.

  • Tonnie M

    Agreed. Only answer is to lock her up and melt the key. Maybe, if that sentence made the news, someone might think twice before committing an act displaying similar dumbassery, thus preventing another tragedy.

    I know that, had it been my child this asshat had killed, nothing would comfort me on my loss. But I wouldn’t want her to spend a single day enjoying the comforts no longer available to her victims. It’s not much, but it’s what I’d hope for.

  • I don’t know. I chewed my way in.

  • Delaney3030


  • Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. The sentence for DUI manslaughter/murder could be beheading, and there would still be DUI. It’s because of the psychology involved. Most crime is committed under the assumption that the perp won’t get caught, thus consequence never gets a chance to factor into the decision-making.

    That’s why, although DUI sentencing has gotten harsher and harsher in recent years, DUI-rates and related fatalities has statistically leveled off. Because harsh punishment only goes so far in correcting an issue. After that point has been reached, educational programs and municipal planning (zoning bars to be in neighborhoods so that people can walk rather than drive; better, more and encouraged public transportation, etc.) is really the only hope for curbing the issue.

    I hope this broad goes away for a long, long time. But harsher sentencing does not typically cause others to think twice. I just wanted to point that out.

    Exactly! They spend 12 seconds in here and think they can read us like books? It took me 43 years to get this strange, I don’t think these newbies can accurately dissect me, you, Evan or any of the rest of us in just the blink of an eye! ;-p

  • MLE

    It’s actually something my EMT instructor explained to me a few years ago. Drunk people have slow reflexes and instinct. When people are in a car crashes, the moment of the impact would cause most people to instinctively flex their muscle and brace for impact, this actually causes more injury to the victim. On the other hand, the drunk person’s reaction is much slowed and so their body is not braced thus making the impact not as severe as it would a sober person. I forgot the specific scientific details since it’s been years but you can research this if you’d like.

    My prays to the Ferrante Family and the Catronio Family I can not say it enough How sorry i am for your loss. To the Mendoza Family shame on you for trying to defend your daughters wrongful careless actions she killed two people . You can love your kids yes but yr not loving her , If you were you would be telling her the right thing to do and that is to stand up for her actions and choices .Thats the proper way to be a parent dont you turn yr head like shes the victim . I feel drunk drivers need to be punished just like a person that pulls a trigger on a gun . They are charged with murder or att murder . well when a drunk gets behind the wheel that there gun . You have no right to take a life . Kayla you need to see what you did you need to know u cant fix it you knew that when you decided to get behind that wheel . I dont want to hear one person say to me i am wrong for what i posted cause I am not Kayla is the one thats wrong her careless out of control ass did this she is not even old enough to be drinking for one . I hope this has a affect on you everyday that you get another day at life and it eats away at you !!

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Judging by her actions, I’d think there was a very good reason for the curfew.
    The better question would be, why didn’t she stick to it?

  • The Great Taco

    …are you sure you’re thinking about the right person? The “pothead princess” was the one with crappy actions, she didn’t have the curfew. The poor woman that died did.

  • exactly. when testing those cars with dummies, they’re pretty much using a drunk as the test subject… so yeah those cars were pretty much designed to save every drunkards life lol so annoying.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Ah okay 🙁 I scanned the article and didn’t see any mention of a curfew for either party.
    I don’t know how licensing structure goes in the US, but in Australia when you’re on a Provisional 1 licence, you have a curfew on passengers if you’re under 25. P1 is the next stage from Learner, so it’s understandable. I don’t know if that’s sort of curfew @emilyclocke:disqus mentioned.

    Because Mendoza is young and pretty and young and pretty girls get a vagina pass.

    Women are fraction as likely to be accused if they’ve committed a crime.
    If accused, they are a fraction as likely to be arrested as a man.

    If arrested they are a fraction as likely to be charged as a man.

    If charged, they are a fraction as likely to be prosecuted as a man.

    If prosecuted, they are a fraction as likely to be convicted as a man.

    If convicted, they are a fraction as likely to be incarcerated as a man.

    If incarcerated, they get a fraction of the sentence that a man would get under the exact same circumstances.

    Do you think Casey Anthony was just a fluke? It’s called a pus sy pass and the pretty you are the bigger the sentencing discount.
