COUPEVILLE, Wash. — An Island County court judge will sentence an 18-year-old girl for a drunk driving crash that killed three of her friends last year. Kaylea Souza, 18, was charged with vehicular homicide after the November 12, 2011 crash that killed Rob Knight, Marcel “Mick” Porter and Charles “Mack” Porter on Whidbey Island. She pleaded guilty. The sentencing is scheduled for 1:30 Friday in Coupeville. Souza admitted she had been drinking the night of the crash. She passed another car in her 2003 four-door Chevrolet, lost control and slammed into a tree, causing the car to burst into flames. One witness was able to pull Souza from the burning wreckage, but the flames were too intense to get the other three. The victims were burned beyond recognition. According to probable cause documents, Souza told Langley Police that she had consumed a 40-ounce “Micky's” and some “Olde English.” Souza also said, “I wasn't that drunk,” and later yelled out, “I can't believe they let me drive,” documents say.
