BOCA RATON, FL ( — A fiery multi-car crash this morning on the Florida Turnpike near Glades Road was caused by a drunk Nina Marie Rodriguez of Boynton Beach, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

Rodriguez, 34, according to FHP, had a blood alcohol content of .116 and .117 in two tests conducted after the explosion.

Investigators say a vehicle had pulled off onto the shoulder in the area of Glades when Rodriguez — unable to stay in her own lane — drifted onto the shoulder. She struck the rear of the other vehicle — a 2003 Chevy pickup — which burst into flames.

All occupants of the pickup got out safely.
