Drunk driving has been a problem in the US for longer than I can remember. Every year – no, every day – families mourn the loss of a family member because somebody had a false sense of trust in themselves that they could make it anywhere while driving under the influence.
A young woman in Pennsylvania who had tweeted about her being the “Best Drunk Driver Ever” ended up killing 3 people while driving drunk 2 months after making the ridiculous post.
If you ask me, I’m the best drunk driver ever 😭😭😭— TJ🦋 (@Tanae_jay) January 15, 2022
According to 6ABC in Philadelphia, 21 year old Tayana Janae Webb is being charged with third-degree murder, homicide by vehicle while DUI, manslaughter of a law enforcement officer in the second degree, driving under the influence and other charges, after allegedly hitting and killing two Pennsylvania State Troopers – Branden Sisca, 29, Martin Mack III, 33 – and a pedestrian they were helping on the shoulder of I-95, Reyes Rivera, 28.
“This is a heartbreaking tragedy that occurred while these troopers were protecting and serving, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf said. “This mournful incident is a stark reminder of the risks—and sacrifices—our law enforcement officers undertake every day to keep us safe. My heart goes out to their families and the communities they lived in and served.”
Both state troopers leave behind wives, Sisca’s wife is pregnant, Mack also had 2 children.
