Brittany and Alexis Musumeci were hit by a vehicle travelling in the wrong direction


A young violinist and her sister have been killed in a head-on collision while driving to their mother’s home in Pompano Beach, Florida.

23-year-old Brittany Musumeci (pictured) was a recent graduate of the Peck School of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Her sister Alexis, aged 24, was an Air Force staff sergeant.

The two were killed instantly when their car collided with another vehicle driving in the wrong direction along Interstate 95 in Martin County, said the Florida Highway Patrol.

Brittany was a woman ‘with so much to look forward to,’ University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee professor Bernard Zinck told the Sun Sentinel. ‘She was really a special student, very talented, not pretentious, kind, respectful and she loved to perform. She had a very attractive, natural sound.’
