At least ten drivers called 911 in the early morning hours of November 17 to report seeing a wrong way driver blasting through traffic on the Sawgrass Expressway. The calls came in fast and furious, warning Coral Springs Police and Florida Highway Patrol troopers about a dangerous driver speeding down the highway.
The 20-year-old woman who allegedly killed two Coral Springs women while driving the wrong way on a South Florida expressway last November was driving at nearly twice the legal blood alcohol limit, according to a Florida Highway Patrol search warrant filed Tuesday.
The wrong-way driver accused of causing a deadly accident on the Sawgrass Expressway early Sunday morning doesn’t even have a valid driver’s license.
The wrong-way driver who caused a deadly accident on the Sawgrass Expressway early Sunday morning tweeted just two hours before the accident, “2 drunk 2 care.”
An emotional candlelight vigil was held in the Coral Springs community–just one step in the grieving process for more than a hundred friends and family that packed a small park, right across the street where victim Marisa Catronio lived.
It’s a story upsetting for any parent. Their kids heading home are involved in an accident and now we are learning this has happened before on the same stretch of roadway.
Coral Springs woman died overnight in a head on collision on the Sawgrass Expressway. Kayla Mendoza, 20, was heading east in the westbound lanes of expressway when she collided with 20-year old Kaitly Ferrante’s Toyota Camry just west of University Drive.
