PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Pennsylvania State Police say a measure of justice was obtained with the sentencing of the woman who killed two Pennsylvania state troopers and a pedestrian in a 2022 DUI crash.
Jayana Webb, of Eagleville, will serve up to 60 years for striking and killing Troopers Martin Mack and Branden Sisca on March 21, 2022.
The troopers were helping a pedestrian, identified as 28-year-old Reyes Rivera Oliveras, get into the back of their cruiser on Interstate 95 South near the Stadium Complex in South Philadelphia when the crash happened. Oliveras also died in the wreck.
Webb's blood alcohol concentration was .211% at the time of the crash, investigators said.
District Attorney Larry Krasner spoke about the case during a news conference Tuesday, saying the incident was preventable.
Family members also shared their grief.
"Due to negligence and selfishness and blatant disrespect for herself and everybody else on the road that evening, you know lives were changed," said Stephaine Mack, the wife of Trooper Martain Mack.
"To drunk drivers, this isn't okay. There's no excuse to be a drunk driver. And if you say, 'oh I only did it once and I didn't hurt anybody,' well, you're still a hypocrite. You shouldn't be doing it in the first place and you should be ashamed of yourself for doing it," added Brittany Sisca, the wife of Trooper Branden Sisca.
