Convicted BR woman speaks at trial

  // Wednesday, 09 July 2014 21:12 //

A Baton Rouge woman convicted last summer in a horrific Interstate 10 crash that killed two adults and three young children testified Wednesday that a St. Landry Parish man tailed her for 10 miles and then tried to pass her on the shoulder before clipping her vehicle, shooting across the median and colliding with the car carrying the five victims.

“He was harassing me on the road,” 25-year-old Kelsye Hall, who was released from prison Sunday, said on the opening day of David Leger’s vehicular homicide trial.

But two other witnesses — Dara Soulier, of Gonzales, and Kevin Patton, of Baton Rouge — were driving westbound on I-10 that tragic night of March 13, 2011, and testified both Hall and Leger appeared to have been engaged in a high-speed game of “cat and mouse” or road rage.

East Baton Rouge Parish prosecutors rested their case against Leger on Wednesday evening after calling a dozen witnesses.
