The families of the two women killed in the "2 drunk 2 care" accident have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Kayla Mendoza.

On November 17, 20-year-old Kayla Mendoza drove her Hyundai Sonata the wrong way onto the Sawgrass Expressway and crashed into a 2012 Toyota Camry, killing Marisa Catronio and a passenger, Kaitlyn Ferrante.

Mendoza, who was hospitalized after suffering serious injuries, had tweeted out "2 drunk 2 care" hours before the crash.

According to Brett Panter, an attorney representing Marisa Catronio's family, they want to know if Mendoza was served alcohol at a specific bar or restaurant.

"We want to find out if she was served alcohol somewhere, if she was doing drugs somewhere," he said. "We don't know that now."

According to a crash report by the Florida Highway Patrol, Mendoza may have been drinking prior to the crash. According to her own tweet, she was.

There were also references to smoking weed in her Twitter account.

Mendoza's family, meanwhile, told New Times that her Twitter had been hacked.

According to the lawsuit, in addition to compensation for pain and suffering, the families are asking for compensation for medical expenses and funeral expenses.

The owner of the car Mendoza was driving that night, Federico Javier Reyes Santiago, was also named in the suit.

Actually, whoever sold her alcohol IS responsible legally because she was served underage... They should lose their liquor license because they are liable for her accident.  If you ask any hospitality lawyer, this is based on facts.  Similar to how when that girl killed that chef on Collins Ave while she was drunk driving, Nikki Beach was held responsible for providing the underage girl with a copious amount of alcohol that led to the accident.  It was most certainly 100% the girl's fault for drinking & driving, however if a bar/ restaurant was responsible for continuously serving someone past the legal limit, then it is their fault.  Anyone whose job it is to serve alcohol can tell you that by law, you are required to cut someone off who is clearly intoxicated.  If you fail to do so then you, the server, can personally be held responsible and lose your job, for good reason!

Why stop with whoever sold the liquor to her, let's also go after the state who licensed the bar to sell the dangerous product, and also the company who made the dangerous beverage that causes people to act this way.
