“If you ask me, I’m the best-drunk driver ever,” the post reads.
According to the Fox 29 report:
“The impact of the crash knocked both troopers into the northbound lanes and ripped both driver’s side doors off of their SUV.”
“Webb’s vehicle later came to a stop on the right shoulder of the southbound lanes and she remained at the scene prior to being taken into custody. … Law enforcement sources told FOX 29 that a 21-year-old driver had a blood alcohol content more than twice the legal limit.”
The Daily Mail also noted, “Webb’s Twitter account contains numerous references to alcohol in recent weeks. On February 18, she referred to ‘getting in at 8 am drunk’ and on January 21 she posted: ‘I get drunk & start saying anything.’”
Mack joined the Pennsylvania State Police in 2014 and Sisca joined in February 2021. Both were assigned to the department’s Troop K section in Philadelphia.
CBS Philadelphia report also added, “The judge denied her bail despite this being her first arrest, citing the seriousness of the alleged crimes and public safety. Also during the arraignment, it was revealed Webb admitted at the crash site to drinking earlier that night.”
