Driver all smiles after fatal, allegedly drunken crash (hint-FLORIDA)

https://nypost.com/2018/05/17/driver...drunken-crash/

A Florida woman flashed a carefree smile in her mug shot — despite the possibility of facing manslaughter charges for allegedly crashing her car while drunk and killing a 60-year-old woman.

The accident happened in Ocala just before noon May 10, when boozed-up driver Agenette Marie Welk rammed into the back of a 2017 Hyundai Elantra with her 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche on US Route 27, according to Villages News.

The impact sent the Hyundai — driven by 18-year-old Shiyanne Kroll, whose mother, Sandra Clarkson, was in the passenger seat — hurtling toward the tractor-trailer in front of it.

Kroll’s car became partially wedged under the trailer, which was carrying horses.

She suffered minor injuries, while Clarkson was critically injured and died four days later at Orlando Regional Medical Center, according to Click Orlando.

Clarkson had just celebrated her 60th birthday the day before.

Welk, 44, was arrested at the scene on charges of DUI, DUI with property damage and DUI with great bodily harm. She’s free after posting $10,000 bond.

Florida Highway Patrol officials are working with prosecutors to upgrade those charges to DUI manslaughter following Clarkson’s death.

Welk allegedly reeked of alcohol and had problems following instructions during a field sobriety test. Her blood alcohol content was .172 — more than twice the legal limit.

She told cops she crashed because she dropped her cellphone in the car.

Kroll and her sister Keonna Sciacca were appalled over the smiling mugshot.

“That disgusts me and that means she has no remorse for what she did at all and I hope that judge sees that picture and says the same thing,” Kroll said.

Clarkson suffered a stroke as a result of the crash, which also left her paralyzed and brain-dead, her family said. She was taken off a ventilator Monday.

“Our lives changed forever,” said Sciacca. “It’s definitely wrecked our family forever, not just temporarily, this was a permanent thing that (Welk) did.”

well if she looks that good in a mug shot, imagine if she were all dolled up and not bloated on alcohol...

Agreed... but it's public record now and any good attorney will rip her apart b/c of the photo. Regardless, she shouldn't have been drinking & driving in the first place ...

i dunno man... she may have been drunk as fuck, but even so, she likely still knew what she was doing, or what she did. Unless she was completely blacking out- which I suppose is a possibility- but still, I don't know anyone who ends up sitting in jail and getting their mug shot taken and smiling about it. Just saying that she very much likely knew what's going on.

remember, the person didn't die at the scene. It's not like someone told her and she laughed...she was getting arrested going "what the fuck, why are you guys being so serious"...
I'm sure you've been around drunk white girls before...

I think the American attitude toward incarceration drives this hysteria. People feel the need to determine and enforce punishment beyond what the law allows for some twisted reason.
