A YOUNG woman who tweeted she was ‘2 drunk 2 care’ moments before driving the wrong way down a motorway and killing two best friends has apologised.

Kayla Mendoza was drinking with co-workers in Florida in the hours before she drove the wrong way down a busy motorway ploughing in to a car carrying two best friends.

"I wish there was something I could say to make up for what happened”, she told show American show ‘Inside Edition’ in an interview.

"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," she added.

The Broward-Palm Beach New Times published extracts from the interview.

The 21-year-old has been charged with DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide, for killing best friends Kaitlyn Ferrante and Marisa Catronio.

The two victims were both also just 21-years-old.

The accident has left Mendoza confined to a wheelchair and unable to walk.

During the interview she also addressed the notorious ‘2 drunk 2 care tweet.

The former T-mobile worker said it was directed at her boyfriend – she claimed the pair had been fighting.

"It did not mean, 'I'm too drunk to care, I'm going to get in my car now and wherever the hell I end up, that's it,' No." she told the show.

"It was directed to my boyfriend. That's the only person that it was for."
