ALBANY, LA (WAFB) -
Sherman Mack, the attorney for Livingston Parish School Board President Malcolm Sibley, says his client will not face any additional charges for his role in a wreck Saturday morning that killed a Mississippi man.
Investigators with Louisiana State Police executed a warrant Monday
morning to seize the truck owned by Sibley.
The crash happened on LA 43 north of Greensburg in St. Helena Parish
around 5 a.m. Saturday. William Iasigi, 21, of Liberty, MS was killed.
Authorities said Iasigi stopped his truck "in" the southbound lane and was
hit when he got out.
Louisiana State Police arrived at Sibley's home just before Noon
Monday. They loaded his 2012 silver GMC 2500 onto a tow truck. There was
a noticeable dent on the driver's side of the truck. The truck was
taken to the Baton Rouge State Police Crime Lab for analysis.
Sibley, as of today, is not at fault for this accident. He was only
cited for hit and run," said Mack. Sibley's bond was set at $500 and he bonded out immediately.
Mack says his client is very sorry about what happened
but again stressed it was not his fault. "If Mr. Sibley were not on the
school board this would not be news, but I tell you, that has nothing to
do with the way Mr. Sibley feels, the remorse, and he's upset about the
fact that an accident occurred and somebody died."
It's not known if Sibley will attend Thursday night's school board
meeting. The State Police investigation is expected to last four to six
