Drunk Driver Pleads Guilty To Car Crash That Killed 3, Including 2 Pennsylvania Troopers
Jayana Webb also sparked controversy for her prior tweets stating how great of a drunk driver she was.
A drunk driver charged for the March 2022 car crash that killed three people, including two Pennsylvania State Troopers, has pleaded guilty.
Jayana Webb was sentenced to 27-and-a-half to 60 years in prison for the fatal crash that occurred on I-95 South on mile marker 18 in Philadelphia.
The 23-year-old was convicted of three counts of both third-degree murder and homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, as well as one count of driving under the influence, as reported by court records obtained by 6 ABC.
The victims of the crash were law enforcement officers 33-year-old Martin Mack III and 29-year-old Branden Sisca, and 28-year-old Reyes Rivera Oliveras. The state troopers were placing Oliveras in the back of their police vehicle when Webb’s car struck them.
After initially being stopped by the slain troopers, the officers left Webb after receiving word of a pedestrian on the highway, who turned out to be Oliveras. According to authorities, upon the officers leaving the scene, Webb posted to X about the stop: “Why the cop pull me & he say im doing 110 ina 50.” The young woman continued on her dangerous drive, running straight into them 15 minutes later.
Webb’s blood alcohol content was .211%, more than double Pennsylvania’s legal limit of .08%. The records also state that Webb was driving well over the speed limit, around 110 mph.
Weeks before the fatal accident Webb appeared to have posted that she was the “best drunk driver ever,” Fox 29 reported.
District attorney Larry Krasner released a statement following the resolution of the case.
“Today’s conviction of Jayana Webb is a just resolution of one of the most shocking incidents of vehicular violence in recent memory,” he said.
