The 34-year-old was arrested on DUI homicide charges in the West Palm Beach wreck that killed a 31-year-old woman and a 21-year old and also injured a 26-year old driver of Port St. Lucie. A Judge placed her on house arrest as she waits for trial. She will be allowed to care for a relative during her confinement.

A witness told city police that the 34-year-old was speeding on Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard heading toward the intersection with Okeechobee Boulevard. She was hanging out the window yelling and waving her arms, the witness said.

She then lost control of the car, which turned counterclockwise and into a Toyota, the witness said.

When police arrived the two passengers had already died. While the 34-year-old was unresponsive in the driver’s seat.

Police records show she was driving at least 49 mph in a 40-mph zone.

Results of a blood test show the 34-year-old had marijuana in her system, as well as drugs used as sedatives and anxiety medication.

18-Year-Old Killed In Guardrail Car Crash

An 18-year-old died in a fatal car crash in Broward County. The County sent her father a bill for the guardrail that killed her.

couch 1011

“The crash occurred when her car left the road and crashed into a truck and then into the guardrail, it didn’t crumble or redirect the car like it was supposed to, the Post reports. Instead, it punctured the car, slammed into her, and pushed her into the backseat. She died instantly.

The truck driver identified as a 30-year-old sustained few minor injuries in the crash.

Only a week earlier, the Broward County authorities had decided to stop using that specific type of guardrail over concerns about how it performed in crashes over 45 mph. The speed limit on the road where she died was 65 mph.

Flabbergasted by the bill to remove the damaged guardrail and install a new one, the 18-year-old’s dad refused to pay it.

The Martin County Department of Transportation has since apologized for sending the bill, saying it was a mistake somewhere in processing and the family doesn’t have to pay it.

The department says it doesn’t usually send bills in fatal accidents. There are still  thousands of the guardrails like the one that killed the 18-year-old lining Broward County roads and her dad wants them replaced.

FHP says, it will be removing the guardrails from roads with speed limits greater than 45 mph.

“I was inside with my coworker and I heard a noise. Everybody came running out,” said a doorman in a building adjacent to the wreck.

It was a long sound, I’m thinking it was the bike being dragged thirty feet.

“As soon as the crash happened all those cops just ran over to the poor guy on the ground and started to give him CPR, the cops ran over in less than a second.”

The unidentified 32-year-old male motorcyclist died and an unidentified adult passenger was also declared dead in a hospital, according to cops.

Three other people were also being treated at Fort Pierce Hospital, but police could not say how they were injured.
