It’s bad enough that people make the decision to drive after they’ve clearly had too much to drink. It doesn’t take much time at the bar to get to that point — we’ve all been there. But when you make that choice to get on the road in that condition, all kinds of terrible things can happen.
It’s bad enough to be involved in a crash and get a DUI… that’s usually a sign you need to turn your life around. But it’s even worse when that crash takes the life of an innocent motorist. It’s super double worse when you get booked and smile for your mugshot…
Fox 2 Now reports:
OCALA, Fla. – A Florida woman arrested on DUI charges after a crash that killed a 60-year-old woman was pictured smiling in her mugshot, according to the Ocala Star-Banner.
44-year-old Angenette Marie Welk was driving on U.S. 27 when she hit Sandra Clarkston and her daughter, 18-year-old Shiyanne Kroll, from behind. The impact caused Clarkston’s car to slam into the back of a tractor-trailer.
Welk’s blood alcohol content was 0.172 percent, which is more than twice the state’s limit of 0.08 percent.
She was arrested for DUI with serious bodily injury, given a $10,000 bond and released from jail.
Clarkston, who was taken to Ocala Regional Medical Center, died on May 14th.
Welk was re-arrested on Saturday after her charges were upgraded to DUI manslaughter. She didn’t smile when the new mugshot was taken.
