A woman responsible for killing three people on I-95 after driving into oncoming traffic while drunk has pleaded guilty.
On April 1, Priscilla Cortez, 33, was headed south on the northbound side in Bensalem. Even though she was going the wrong way, Cortez was still driving above the speed limit at nearly 70 miles per hour.
At about 1:40 a.m., she crashed into another vehicle. The incident killed three people from Lower Bucks.
They included Ryan Connell, 28, Leanne Popson, 35, both of Levittown, and Lucas Gelatko, 36, of Yardley. All three victims were parents.
The crash killed two victims from Levittown and a third from Yardley, all between the ages of 28 and 36. All three victims also had children.
Police conducted a blood draw and found Cortez was on the road with a BAC nearly double the legal limit. She also had marijuana in her system.
Common Pleas Judge Theodore Frisch Jr. has deferred her sentence for 60 days. Cortez, a Camden resident, will remain in Bucks County Correctional Facility until then, where she has been since May.
