The president of the Livingston Parish School Board was arrested Sunday in connection with a deadly hit and run crash that happened early Saturday morning.

Louisiana State Police said Malcolm Sibley, 65, of Walker, was booked into the St. Helena Parish Jail on a charge of felony hit and run around 10 a.m. Troopers said Sibley was identified as a suspect through several tips from the public.

The crash happened on LA 43 just north of Greensburg a little before 5 a.m. Troopers said William Iasigi, 21, of Liberty, MS, was hit after stopping his truck and getting out. Iasigi was driven to the hospital by his passenger and another man. He was pronounced dead around 5:05 a.m.

Investigators determined Iasigi was hit by a light-colored Chevrolet or GMC truck that was missing the driver's side mirror. It is believed Sibley hit Iasigi with a silver 2012 GMC 2500 truck.

Livingston Parish School Board Superintendent John Watson said he is aware of the arrest.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with all the families involved," he said.

The crash remains under investigation.
