Two State Troopers Reportedly Beaten And Killed By Driver They Recently Stopped

Two Pennsylvania officers and a pedestrian were killed early Monday morning after being hit by a car. Troopers Martin F. Mack, 33, and Branden T. Sisca, 29, had recently detained a woman “on suspicion of DUI” when they received a call about a man walking along Interstate 95 in South Philadelphia, 6. ABC reports. The troopers exited the car to respond to the potential pedestrian crisis. While trying to get the man into their vehicle, the troopers were reportedly hit by the woman they had just apprehended for the possible DUI as she drove onto the verge to avoid traffic jammed around the troopers’ patrol car. Police reported that the impact of the collision threw the troopers into traffic and they died on the spot. The identity of the pedestrian who died has not been released. Law enforcement sources reported that the driver who hit the officers remained at the scene. In a statement following the crash, Governor Tom Wolf said, “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.”
