The wives of the Pennsylvania State Troopers who were killed in a deadly DUI crash on I-95 in South Philadelphia in 2022 joined Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Kranser to discuss the recent guilty plea and sentencing of the woman responsible for their deaths on Tuesday.

Last week, Jayana Webb, 23, was sentenced to spend at least 27 years behind bars for her role in the crash that killed two state troopers and a pedestrian.

Webb pleaded guilty to striking and killing Pennsylvania State Troopers Martin F. Mack III, 33, and Branden T. Sisca, 29, as well as 28-year-old Reyes Rivera Oliveras on Interstate 95 near the Broad Street exit on March 21, 2022.

While speaking to the press on Tuesday, the troopers' wives took time to thank the troopers and attorneys that have been part of the process since their husbands' untimely deaths.

"It's been a whirlwind," said Stephanie Mack, wife of fallen Trooper Mack. "That evening, lives were changed."

She noted that the pair have two daughters and, she's looking forward to the day when she can tell them that the woman who killed their father is behind bars.

However, though 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, as part of the plea deal, her prison time has been delayed due to her being pregnant.
