POMPANO BEACH, Florida — Two sisters from South Florida died in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 95 as they were returning home from Disney World.

The Florida Highway Patrol says a Jeep Cherokee traveling the wrong way near Fort Pierce Saturday, September 26th struck the sisters’ Toyota Matrix head-on.

The vehicles exploded into a fireball that was captured on cellphone video.

Officials say 24-year-old Alexis Musumeci and her 23-year-old sister Brittany were declared dead at the scene. Investigators say 23-year-old Admerson Cleber Eugenio Vicente was critically injured in the crash.

A friend of the sisters told the Sun Sentinel that Brittany Musumeci was an accomplished violinist and recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Her sister was an Air Force staff sergeant who was headed to an assignment in Korea.

    Katie’s Law should be passed: I was told by a friend who followed up with the illegal driver Admerson Cleber Eugenio Vicente through NBC reporter that he should have been deported back to Guatemala. ICE had detained him for warrant from Guatemala.

      Just because that accident happened doesn’t make him a bad person. It could’ve been anybody! I know him personally and he is actually a good person, he doesn’t deserve to be deported just because an accident happened. Put yourself in that position. It wasn’t intentionally done. Just because he has a warrant somewhere doesn’t mean he deserves to sit in jail. He didn’t intentionally kill them girls, it was an accident. He deserves some time but not a life sentence, or to be deported. So, yeah. Everyone has their opinion, but I just wanted to say this. THANKS

        I do believe in honoring the laws of the United States. He broke the law by entering illegally. He made the wrong choice, broke the law and must be deported.
