Baton Rouge, La. (AP) - State Police have issued arrest warrants for the drivers of two vehicles who they say caused Sunday night's fiery Interstate 10 car accident that killed five people, including three children.
Troopers alleged that road rage led 29-year-old David Leger and 24-year-old Kelsye Hall to drive dangerously and erratically, ending with Leger's vehicle spinning out of control, crossing the
median and colliding head-on with a car carrying five people.
Lt. Doug Cain, a state police spokesman, said Hall and Leger were involved in some sort of encounter while westbound on the interstate which led to Hall intentionally preventing Leger from
passing her vehicle.
When arrested, Leger faces five counts of vehicular homicide and Hall will be booked with five counts of negligent homicide.
