A 21-year-old woman is facing a bevy of charges after she allegedly hit and killed two police officers and another individual — driving under the influence is listed among the litany of charges.
Reports indicate that the woman, Jayana Tanae Webb, had tweeted in January, "If you ask me, I'm the best drunk driver ever."
The incident occurred on March 21 — according to a press release, people dialed 911 to report an individual walking on I-95. Troopers Martin F. Mack III and Branden T. Sisca were seeking to secure that individual, Reyes Rivera Oliveras, 28, in their vehicle when the deadly incident took place.
“The deaths of Troopers Mack and Sisca, along with Mr. Oliveras, a civilian they were attempting to help to safety on I-95, are tragedies," Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said in a statement. "My office will now seek to ensure this defendant is held accountable for her alleged actions that resulted in this senseless loss of life."
The district attorney's office detailed the lengthy list of charges Webb is facing, including, "3 counts of Murder in the 3rd Degree (F1), 3 counts of Involuntary Manslaughter (M1), 2 counts of Manslaughter of a Law Enforcement Officer 2nd Degree (F2), 3 counts of Reckless Endangerment of Another Person (M2), 3 counts of Homicide by Vehicle while DUI (F2), 3 counts of Homicide by Vehicle (F3), DUI (M), Driving at Safe Speed (S), Careless Driving (S), and Reckless Driving (S)."
The Pennsylvania State Troopers Association described the deceased law enforcement officers as "heroes" in a statement.
"Trooper Martin Mack and Branden Sisca died serving the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania," the statement said. "They are heroes, who will forever be honored by all those who recite the Pennsylvania State Police Call of Honor and serve as a Pennsylvania State Trooper. Our hearts, love and prayers go out to their loved ones. The PSTA will be there for them during this difficult time. We also want to extend our deepest sympathies to the family of the pedestrian who was killed in this tragedy."
