A young woman who bragged on Twitter, “I’m the best drunk driver ever” has been charged with third-degree murder, homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, DUI, and related charges after she allegedly rammed a pedestrian and two Pennsylvania state troopers to their deaths after they had pulled her over two miles before just after midnight on Monday morning.
Jayana Tanae Webb, 21, was seen shackled in handcuffs belonging to the two fallen troopers as she was transported from the Pennsylvania State Police Troop K barracks to Philadelphia police headquarters on Tuesday afternoon.
At roughly 1 a.m. on Monday, state troopers Martin F. Mack III, 33, and Branden T. Sisca, 29, pulled Webb over on suspicion of DUI on I-95, but then released her when they were summoned to deal with Reyes Rivera Oliveras, 28, walking on the left side of the southbound lanes two miles away. The troopers walked Oliveras to their SUV, but as they were getting him into the vehicle, Webb allegedly rammed into the SUV at high speed, killing all three men.
“The impact of the crash knocked both troopers into the northbound lanes and ripped both driver’s side doors off of their SUV,” Fox 29 reported. “Webb’s vehicle later came to a stop on the right shoulder of the southbound lanes and she remained at the scene prior to being taken into custody. … Law enforcement sources told FOX 29 that a 21-year-old driver had a blood alcohol content more than twice the legal limit.”
“Webb’s Twitter account contains numerous references to alcohol in recent weeks,” The Daily Mail noted. “On February 18, she referred to ‘getting in at 8am drunk’ and on January 21 she posted: ‘I get drunk & start saying anything.’”
Mack, who was married with two children, served as an assistant lacrosse coach at Harry S. Truman High School. Head coach Mike Walczak told CBS Philadelphia, “The players just wanted to say that Marty Mack taught them a lot, not just as lacrosse players, but in life as well. They loved the opportunities they got to spend with him and the lessons that he taught them will never be forgotten.”
Sisca was married with one unborn child; his wife is pregnant. He also served as the fire chief at the Trappe Fire Company and is the son of a deputy at the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. He joined the force in February 2021.
“The judge denied her bail despite this being her first arrest, citing the seriousness of the alleged crimes and public safety. Also during the arraignment, it was revealed Webb admitted at the crash site to drinking earlier that night,” CBS Philadelphia added.
