PSTA Condemns Philadelphia Municipal Court Judge’s Decision To Drop Murder Charges Against Woman Who Struck And Killed Two Troopers On Interstate 95

Pennsylvania State Troopers Association (PSTA) President David Kennedy today issued the following statement on the decision by Philadelphia Municipal Court Judge Karen Simmons to dismiss third-degree murder charges against a woman who struck and killed Trooper Martin Mack, Trooper Branden Sisca and a pedestrian on Interstate 95 in March:

“Our investigators did an amazing job. There was absolutely no testimony during yesterday’s hearing that should’ve led to the dismissal of the most serious charges. Judge Simmons struck another blow against law and order in Philadelphia. Dismissing these charges sends another message to criminals that you can literally get away with murder. Once these charges are refiled by the district attorney’s office, it’s our hope a top prosecutor will be assigned to this case. Everything must be done to ensure justice is served for these brave troopers and their grieving families.”
