BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Testimony has ended in the negligent homicide case against a woman accused of killing five people in a 2011 car crash.

Four witnesses were called to testify by the defense, including an eyewitness.  Sandy Anderson told Judge Trudy White that she was only two cars away from Kelsye Hall and a man accused in the crash, David Leger.

Anderson testified that she didn't notice Hall trying to cut off Leger, as the prosecution contends.

Richard Fox, an accident reconstruction expert testified that Hall did not cause the I-10 crash because nothing she did prior to the crash caused the actual wreck.

Hall has been charged with five counts of negligent homicide.

All parties will return to court Friday morning for closing arguments.
