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.
