PHILADELPHIA (November 22, 2023) – A Montgomery County woman on Wednesday pleaded guilty to the vehicular homicide of two Pennsylvania State troopers and one pedestrian, less than two weeks before she was scheduled to be tried by a Philadelphia jury.
Jayana Webb (DOB: 4/12/00) was arrested and charged in March 2022 for a violent vehicle crash on I-95 that killed Pennsylvania State Troopers Martin F. Mack III and Branden T. Sisca, as well as Reyes Rivera Oliveras, a pedestrian who they were attempting to help get safely out of harm’s way. Webb pleaded guilty to three counts of 3rd Degree Murder, three counts of Homicide by Vehicle while Driving Under the Influence, and one count of Driving Under the Influence.
Webb was sentenced by the Hon. Barbara McDermott to 27½ to 60 years in prison.
District Attorney Larry Krasner said, “Today’s conviction of Jayana Webb is a just resolution of one of the most shocking incidents of vehicular violence in recent memory. I want to thank ADA Jeffrey Hojnowski and our team in the Homicide/Non-Fatal Shootings Unit, along with the Pennsylvania State Police, for a skillful investigation and prosecution that avoided a jury trial, which would have undoubtedly been retraumatizing for the families of Trooper Mack, Trooper Sisca, and Mr. Oliveras. This matter will formally conclude next Tuesday when Ms. Webb is to turn herself in before the court. We will have more to share with the press and the public at that time.”
