Prescription pills found in blood sample of driver in deadly crash


From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

As the governor signs his education overhaul into law, another bill dealing with our schools never made it out of committee. Was the "Bullying" bill bullied out of committee by lawmakers or was it the right call? Staying with our schools, if you live in Livingston Parish, you have a big vote coming up. Will you vote to renew the tax that helps keep your schools among the top in the state? We'll talk with Superintendent Bill Spear. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
