A woman who boasted on Twitter that she is the "best drunk driver ever" has been charged with killing two Pennsylvania state troopers and a civilian in an early Monday morning, March 21, crash on a Philadelphia interstate.

Jayana Tanae Webb, of Eagleville, was driving southbound on Interstate-95 when troopers Martin Mack III (33) and Branden Sisca (29) pulled her over on suspicion of DUI (driving under the influence).

The troopers were questioning Webb when they were called away to assist a man endangering himself by walking along the busy interstate highway.

They let Webb go free and rushed to help the distressed pedestrian, 28-year-old Reyes Rivera Oliveras, who was located walking in the southbound lanes some miles down the interstate.

The troopers were taking Oliveras into the patrol car when Webb allegedly plowed into their police SUV at high speed. All three men were struck and killed by the impact of the crash.

At the time of the crash, Webb had a blood alcohol content level twice the legal limit, police said.

The 21-year-old is 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.

Webb allegedly admitted to driving under the influence and reportedly sobbed when the judge denied her bail.

"Right now she's devastated," said Michael Walker, Webb’s attorney. "She's extremely saddened. She is not a violent criminal. She has no criminal past, has no prior contacts with police whatsoever."

Earlier this year, Webb had taken to Twitter to brag about her ability to drive while drunk."If you ask me, I’m the best drunk driver ever," she tweeted on Jan. 15.

Governor Tom Wolf issued a statement addressing the tragic loss of the two young officers.

"This tragedy is a reminder that our law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day, and we Pennsylvanians are grateful for the men and women who protect us and our communities," he said.

A statement from the Pennsylvania State Trooper's Association said: "Trooper Martin Mack and Branden Sisca died serving the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania."

"They are heroes, who will forever be honored by all those who take recite the Pennsylvania State Police Call of Honor and serve as a Pennsylvania State Trooper."
