Florida Stripper Accused Of Killing 3 Teens In DUI Crash
Three teens walking to a bus stop over Memorial Day weekend to catch a ride to a soccer tournament was killed by a woman who was driving without a license.
The woman behind the wheel has been identified as 31-year-old Mariam Coulibaly. She was also treated in a hospital for injuries sustained in the Saturday morning crash that killed 13-year-old Gideon Desir, 15-year-old Lens Desir and 17-year-old Richecarde Dumay. According to Miami Herald, she was arrested Tuesday on charges of DUI manslaughter.
As tragic as this is, this is not the first problem she had while behind the wheel. Court records show that Coulibaly, a worker for The Body, a strip club near Miami — has been cited for 41 traffic infractions since 2008. Before her arrest, she told the Miami Herald she had blacked out and “didn’t even know that I hurt people.”
Toxicologists tested vials of her blood and initial results indicated she was drunk by nearly double the legal limit some four hours after the wreck, two sources with knowledge of the investigation shared with the Herald. Police said Coulibaly reeked of alcohol and eventually admitted to medical staff that she had been partying.
Her brother-in-law also spoke out and told the news site that she previously hit a Miami-Dade County bus which landed her in the Jackson hospital for weeks with broken bones and a concussion.
“We are feeling bad about those kids. We are very, very sorry,” he said of the latest accident. “We are praying for the kids and the entire family. It’s not an easy situation. We know what it’s like because we were in that situation two years ago when we almost lost her.”
