Tests show driver in fatal I-10 crash intoxicated

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - An arrest warrant says the blood-alcohol level of a man arrested in a March 13 crash on Interstate 10 that killed three children and two women was 0.10 percent.
The warrant says David Ryan Leger was over the 0.08 percent blood-alcohol level considered legally intoxicated in Louisiana.
Leger and Kelsye Jacque Hall, who was also wanted in the crash, surrendered to authorities March 18.
Hall was booked on five counts of negligent homicide. Leger faces five counts of vehicular homicide.
Investigators claim road rage led Leger and Hall to drive dangerously and erratically, causing Leger's pickup to spin out of control, cross the median and collide head-on with a car carrying five people.
