MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A woman who caused a deadly wrong way wreck on I-95 just before the New Year had been drinking before the crash.
On December 30th, 23-year old Alexandra Nalani Lefler was behind the wheel of a pick up truck heading south in the northbound lanes of I-95 when she side-swiped one car and then slammed head on into a Hyundai Sonata near the Miami Gardens Drive exit just after 12:30 a.m.
Lefler and all four people in the Sonata were killed.
The four people in Sonata were family members; Miguel Gil, from Cooper City; Jose Labrador Gil, 52, and Gisela Gil Egui, 40, from Bridgeport, Connecticut and Gisela Margarita Egui Hernandez, 71, from Venezuela. The visitors were in town for the holidays. Two of the people in the car, who were not wearing seat belts, were ejected.
Toxicology results show Lefler’s blood alcohol content level was .189, or more than twice the state’s legal limit of .08, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office.
A friend of Lefler said she had recently moved to South Florida from San Francisco to be with her father who recently passed away. He added that she was on her way home from a restaurant where she worked when the accident occurred.
