FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. (PIX11) — The woman that tweeted she was “2 drunk 2 care” before crashing head on into another car, killing two young friends, is finally speaking out.

Kayla Mendoza, now 21, told Inside Edition that she doesn’t remember anything from the night she drove the wrong way down the Sawgrass Expressway last November, crashing her Hyundai Sonata into a Toyota Camry carrying Marisa Catronio and Kaitlyn Ferrante, both 21.

The two women, who were driving home from a birthday party for Catronio, were killed.

“When I found out that not only did I get into an accident, but the two girls I got into an accident had passed away, it just really made me wonder why I didn’t too,” Mendoza, who is bound to a wheelchair, said in the exclusive interview.

Addressing the infamous “2 drunk 2 care tweet,” Mendoza said that it was directed at her boyfriend.

“It did not mean, ‘I’m too drunk to care,'” she said. “‘I’m going to get in my car now and wherever the hell I end up, that’s it.’ No. It was directed to my boyfriend. That’s the only person that it was for.”

Mendoza said that before the fatal wreck, she was out drinking with her T-Mobile coworkers and her manager, Marcelo Bruzzo, who she says knew she was underage.

She said after the outing, Bruzzo dropped her back off at her car.

Mendoza said that she wishes there was something she could say to “make up for what happened.”

“But no matter how many ‘sorrys,’ apologies, tears I cry, no matter how much I hate myself for what happened, nothing I say will change anything.”

Mendoza has been charged with two counts of DUI manslaughter, two counts of vehicular homicide and two counts of driving without a license causing death.

    One mistake, ending not two lives, but three. This is such a sad story, and we read about it too much.

    Educating our youth is imperative. Prayers go out to all involved in this tragedy.
