A recent lawsuit is contending that the tragic death of 29-year-old Branden Sisca could have been entirely avoided.
The claim asserts that Trooper Sisca, who was expecting a child with his wife, should have been able to return home safely after completing his shift in 2022.
The lawsuit suggests that there were measures and protocols in place that, if followed correctly, could have prevented this devastating loss.
By highlighting the preventable nature of this tragedy, the lawsuit aims to hold accountable those responsible for ensuring the safety and well-being of law enforcement officers.
The case underscores the importance of implementing and adhering to proper procedures to safeguard the lives of those who serve and protect our communities.
Tragic Accident on I-95
Sisca and Trooper Martin Mack were assisting Reyes Rivera Oliveras, a 28-year-old pedestrian, in entering the back of their cruiser on Interstate 95 South near the Stadium Complex in South Philadelphia.
Tragically, a crash occurred during this process, resulting in the deaths of all three individuals. The loss of these two troopers has not only devastated their colleagues but has also taken a father and husband away from his family.
Attorney Adam Pantano from Saltz Mongeluzzi Bendesky emphasizes the importance of seeking justice for the grieving family.
They deserve answers regarding this heartbreaking incident, and it is crucial to uncover the truth surrounding the circumstances that led to this tragedy.
Wrongful Death Lawsuit
On Tuesday, Pantano announced a wrongful death lawsuit against the 23-year-old driver Janaya Webb who was convicted of killing all three men.
Allegations against Vibe Hookah Lounge
The complaint also alleges Vibe Hookah Lounge in Philadelphia’s Germantown neighborhood for illegally overserving alcohol and marijuana to Webb, even though she was intoxicated.
Illegal Overserving of Alcohol
The lawsuit claims Webb was visibly intoxicated while at the establishment, and after being overserved alcohol and marijuana Webb began recklessly speeding down I-95 at speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.
Unlicensed Alcohol Service
“They had no permit or license to serve alcohol. And beyond the fact they were illegally serving alcohol, they served her beyond the point of intoxication,” said Attorney Jordan Howell with Saltz Mongeluzzi Bendesky.
The Germantown club shut down within a few days of the deadly crash.
Webb is currently serving a 27 to 60-year sentence in state prison after pleading guilty to three counts of third-degree murder, three counts of homicide by vehicle while driving impaired, and one count of DUI.
