GREENSBURG, LA. (AP) - State police have arrested the president of the Livingston Parish School Board after a 21-year-old Mississippi man was killed in a hit-and-run in St. Helena Parish.
Trooper First Class Melissa Matey says the accident occurred shortly before 5 a.m. Saturday when William Iasigi, of Liberty, Miss., was driving south on La. Highway 43 South.
Matey says Iasigi stopped his pickup in the middle of the road and got out and he was struck by another pickup driven by 65-year-old Malcolm Sibley of Walker.
Troopers booked Sibley into St. Helena Parish Jail on a count of felony hit-and-run at 9:40 a.m. Sunday. Jail officials say Sibley posted bail and was released.
It was unclear if Sibley has an attorney.
