Violinist from UW-Milwaukee killed in wrong-way crash in Florida

Posted:

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- 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 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.


   An investigation continues.
