“2 Drunk 2 Care”?

Credit: Steve GarfieldSocial media can play an extremely important role in providing evidence in wrongful injury cases. In the heat of the moment, people have used social media as a way to vent their feelings. Unfortunately, these platforms hold these messages for a very long time, and if they spread widely then it can cause major problems down the road.

A young woman from Florida is now receiving national attention after just such an incident. The woman had a head-on collision with two other women, killing them both. That’s tragic in itself, but what the woman put on social media is causing a public outcry.

The woman, Kaila Mendoza, is an avid Twitter user. She tweeted “2 drunk 2 care” about two hours before alleged crash occurred. The Twitter account also describes her as being a “pothead princess”, and has several pictures and tweets describing illegal drug use, including alcohol.

Her father found Mendoza’s car on the expressway using a GPS device after she violated a curfew. Police are still waiting to find out if Mendoza was drunk at the time of the crash, but she has already been tried in the court of public opinion by her own words.
