The woman who killed 2 Pennsylvania troopers and a civilian in a car crash earlier this week on Monday had been asked to pull over just a few minutes before the car crash happened, sources revealed.
“Suspect allegedly killed 2 PA troopers in crash after they stopped her for speeding minutes earlier,” FOX News Tweeted.
The woman has been identified as Jayana Tanae Webb, who killed the same troopers in the car accident after being asked to stop for speeding the car minutes before the crash.
Troopers Martin F. Mack III, 33 and Branden T. Sisca, 29, had allegedly asked the woman to pull over her 2014 Chevrolet Captiva on Interstate-95 after midnight. However, the sources say the conversation was brief as the troopers responded to a priority call for a man strolling around the highway’s southbound lanes near the Broad Street exit.
The troopers asked for Webb’s driver’s license, insurance and registration details and left after issuing a warning to drive slowly. The entire stop was not more than a minute and captured in the authorities’ dashboard camera, FOX 29 told.
Earlier on Monday, a 28-year-old man named Reyes Rivera Oliveras was reported walking around the southbound lanes of Interstate-95 in South Philadelphia near the sports stadium. Sisca and Mack were trying to pull him aside when a “vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed struck all three” said the police. All of them were pronounced dead at the spot.
Two months back, Webb posted a Tweet boasting how she can drive under the influence.
“If you ask me, I’m the best drunk driver ever” says the Tweet.
Investigators are currently going through her other social media accounts for a possible post regarding Monday’s traffic stop, a source confirmed.
“Drunk driver charged with murder in crash that killed three. Suspect bragged on Twitter “I’m the best drunk driver ever”, weeks earlier,” a source Tweeted.
The assailant has been denied bail and held pending till April 5 hearing. She is currently facing 18 criminal charges.
