Official: Drunken Driver Caused Fatal Miami Wrong-Way Crash

A Miami-Dade County official says a 23-year-old woman was drunk when she drove the wrong way on Interstate 95 last year, killing herself and four others.

Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Director of Operations Darren Caprara tells the South Florida Sun Sentinel that Alexandra Lefler, of San Francisco, had a blood alcohol content that was more than double Florida's legal limit when, on Dec. 30, she drove the wrong way for about a dozen miles before colliding with three sedans.

Lefler died in the crash, as did four family members who had gathered for the holidays: 47-year-old Miguel Gil, of Cooper City, 71-year-old Gisela Margarita Egui Hernandez of Venezuela, and 52-year-old Jose Martin Labrador and 48-year-old Gisela Gil Egui, both of Bridgeport, Connecticut.
