A self-proclaimed “best drunk driver ever” has been charged with murder after she allegedly killed two state troopers and a pedestrian in a DWI crash. Jayana Tanae Webb, 21, faces three counts of third-degree murder after prosecutors said she plowed into troopers Branden Sisca, 29, and Martin Mack III, 33, along with pedestrian Reyes Rivera Oliveras, 28, on the shoulder of I-95 Monday night in Philadelphia, CBS 3 reported.

The station said troopers were responding to a call of a person walking in the southbound lanes of the busy interstate highway near the Broad Street exit when the deadly accident took place.

Webb admitted to driving under the influence. She allegedly cried as she was arraigned on 18 felony counts, including two counts of the manslaughter of a law enforcement officer.

According to fundraising sites, both of the troopers were married. Mack had two children, and Sisca’s widow is pregnant.

The suspect had taken to Twitter earlier this year to brag about her alleged illegal activity.

She tweeted on January 15, “If you ask me, I’m the best drunk driver ever.”

Other alcohol-related tweets were showcased on Webb’s feed, including a stream of often vulgar updates.

On February 5, she wrote, along with a frowning emoji, “Why do the liquor store close so early.”

In the wake of the fatal crash, her account was bombarded by critical comments.

Webb was scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday morning, but it was rescheduled to April 5. Michael Walker, her attorney, said he did not have enough time to prepare for the hearing, so the judge agreed to move the date.

Currently, the suspect is at the detention center on 15th and Callowhill Streets in Philadelphia. Wearing the handcuffs of the two troopers she is accused of killing, she was taken to jail.

“This is a tragedy all the way around,” Walker said.

Until the facts are presented in court, Webb’s attorney asked the public not to pass judgment.
