The driver of the Toyota, the woman from Winter Springs Asnubil Escobar25, was taken into custody at the scene.

Alexander was rushed to a hospital where she was pronounced dead, the Seminole County Fire Department said WKMG TV. Police also said in a news release that the “horrific crash … took the life of wife and mother of three, Tiffany Alexander,” adding that through their investigation they determined that “Escobar was entirely responsible” for Alexander's death.

The 4-year-old, who had been in a booster seat, suffered minor injuries and fainted when Alexander's boyfriend got her out of the car. No injuries were reported to the 9-month-old baby, and Alexander's third child, a 7-year-old girl, was not with her mother during the incident.

“She had her two children in the backseat. They're OK, thank God,” said Winter Springs Police Chief Matthew Trek said at a press conference on Thursday: “This accident could have been completely prevented.”

Tracht said Escobar had a blood alcohol level of 0.38, which is well above the legal limit of 0.08.

“I don't know anyone in this room if we were at 0.38. I don't know how she was at 0.38,” he said, expressing disbelief. “It baffles me.”

The chief also said Escobar had been traveling faster than the posted speed limit of 50 MPH, but officials were still working to determine her exact speed.

“It seems like everyone these days wants to get somewhere quickly, and doesn't care about everyone else on the road,” Chief Tracht said.

He explained that Escobar “was late for work and went back to work,” and that she was a bartender.

“She told us her last alcoholic drinks were around 2:30 in the morning,” Tracht added.

Escobar was booked into jail on multiple charges, including vehicular homicide while intoxicated and causing injury while drunk driving, according to prison records.

“Our police extend our sincere sympathy and condolences to the Alexander family and cannot even imagine what they are trying to cope with,” officials said.

Tracht said he spoke to Alexander's husband, who was “in shock.”

“His wife and the mother of the three children no longer have a mother, so he is going to work on that,” the police commissioner said. 'It's very emotional. I can't think of anyone who would be sitting here. Here now, I want to experience what he's going through.”

a GoFundMe page was founded to help Alexander's family “with the unexpected financial burdens that come with such a tragedy.” [to] contributing to a fund for the future education of her daughters,” the description reads. As of Friday afternoon, it had raised about $67,000 of its $100,000 goal.
