The shocking and tragic case unfolded around 1am on Monday, when Troopers Mack and Sisca pulled Webb over on suspicion of DUI – but then let her go free when they were called away to assist a man endangering himself by walking on the interstate.
About two miles down the interstate from where they pulled over Webb, the two troopers were helping the distressed pedestrian, 28-year-old Reyes Rivera Oliveras, get into their patrol car when Webb allegedly rammed into their police SUV at high speed, killing all three men.
