The driver who struck and killed two Pennsylvania State Troopers and a pedestrian on Interstate 95 last year will serve a long prison sentence after pleading guilty to charges in Philadelphia last week.
Jayana Webb, of Norristown, was accused of fatally striking Trooper Martin Mack III, 33, of Bristol Borough, Trooper Branden Sisca, 29, of Trappe, Montgomery County, and Reyes Rivera Oliveras, 28, of Allentown, along the southbound side of the highway near the Philadelphia sports stadiums on March 21, 2022.
The Philadelphia District Attorney's Offie said Webb pleaded guilty to three counts of third degree murder, three counts of homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, and one count of driving under the influence.
First Judicial District Judge Barbara McDermott sentenced Webb to 27½ to 60 years in prison after accepting her plea, PhillyBurbs reports.
A toxicologist testified Webb had a blood alcohol content of .211, which is nearly three times the legal limit to drive, and had marijuana in her system at the time of the crash.
Testimony also revealed she was going in excess of 80 mph and sending a tweet at the time of the crash.
