OCALA, Fla. — A Florida woman arrested on DUI charges after a crash that killed a 60-year-old woman was pictured smiling in her mug shot, according to the Ocala Star-Banner.

Angenette Marie Welk, 44, 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.
