Big photos below.
At this writing, Britni Bunn's Facebook page is down -- which makes perfect sense under the circumstances.

After all, Bunn has been arrested after allegedly driving drunk while going the wrong way on the Boulder Turnpike and causing a crash that killed one man and seriously injured two others. And hours earlier, she posted photos of margaritas featuring captions like "YessssssssssssssssssS."

At about 2:49 a.m. on Wednesday, according to the Westminster Police Department, Bunn was piloting a Ford SUV westbound on U.S. 36, with her boyfriend, Vincent Gibson, 25, riding along with her.

Problem is, she was in the eastbound lane. She soon struck an Acura coupe with two people inside. The pair in the Acura were seriously injured but survived. However, Gibson, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, died at the scene.

The crash aftermath.
Bunn, too, was hurt in the collision, which closed the highway for hours -- and the pain continued for her once police and TV stations like 7News accessed her Facebook page, which featured a treasure trove of images whose public dissemination couldn't have been more ill-timed from her perspective.

The background photo for the page featured a glamour shot of marijuana....

...and a third found her offering a dog the opportunity to sniff a nug.

By the way, police reportedly found a jar of marijuana in Bunn's car after the crash, as well as a baggie thought to contain cocaine.

We don't know if either of these substances was in Bunn's bloodstream on Wednesday morning -- but the authorities seem mighty confident she was under the influence of alcohol. How?

Um....excuse me, Westword, but the man who died was her boyfriend and was in HER car, not the Acura....you guys should get your story straight before reporting things like this!

They aren't her plants. People that have their own plants definitely don't post pictures of them on fb.... Especially with them in it. Just sayin.

I sort of have a Facebook account, but the damn thing made me register so I could use their site. I live in China, and for some reason, the government has blocked Facebook, but if I lived somewhere where the site was allowed, I would never use it.

Posting pictures of dope plants (I smoke dope everyday, but I keep it to myself) and alcoholic drinks does not make one look good to people, especially employers. This dumbass wont have to worry about that because she is going to the pen for the next 10-20 years and will be unemployable (and to ugly for a man and most dykes) when she gets out.

I had a work acquaintence, who was actually a reserve police officer, never been in trouble with the law before (he worked in a casino with me and again was a reserve cop), who went to a birthday party at some suburban Chili's like restauarant, got drunk and ran a woman off the road. Didn't kill the woman, but I think paralyzed her. He got 10 years. Sad.

One way to solve this problem is to make public transportation more accessable and cheap, with decent taxis where one does not have to be rich to take.

I have an account w/ (0) friends . I only registered one for the millions of sites that offer ('INSTA')-registration via the site . I do NOT 'chat' outside of gambling college & NFL games and it has NOTHING to do w/ FaceBook .

Never trust someone who drives drunk down the wrong part of the highway.

@Juan_Leg @BackOffImStarving Let me rephrase that.  Never trust someone who posts pictures of themselves drinking before causing a fatal accident on Highway 36... better?
