(CBS NEWS) -- A Florida woman flashed a wide smile in her mugshot – despite driving drunk and causing a crash that killed a mother and injured her daughter, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. CBS affiliate WKMG reports that Angenette Marie Welk may face a DUI manslaughter charge after the accident in Marion County last week.

Troopers say Welk was driving her 2011 Chevrolet Avalon when she rear-ended a Hyundai Elantra, sandwiching that car between Welk’s sedan and a tractor-trailer, according to the crash report.

WKMG reports that the driver of the Elantra, 18-year-old Shiyanne Kroll, suffered minor injuries, but her mother, 60-year-old Sandra Clarkson, who was the passenger, suffered critical injuries and died days later.

The truck driver was not injured.

Records show that Welk’s blood alcohol content was .172 – more than twice the legal limit, WKMG reported.
