GREENSBURG, LA (WAFB) - Investigators with Louisiana State Police executed a warrant Monday morning to seize the truck owned by the current Livingston Parish School Board president. He was arrested in connection with a deadly hit and run crash that happened Saturday.

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 he stopped his truck "in" the southbound lane and was hit when he got out.

Troopers seized the truck from the home of Malcolm Sibley, 65, of Walker. He faces a charge of felony hit and run.

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.

"The next step, our crime lab will do an analysis of the truck anywhere from crash damage, to DNA, to fingerprints and then they will relay that information to investigators," said J.B. Slaton.

Officials said Sibley was arrested in Livingston Parish on Sunday around 9:30 a.m. and transported to the St. Helena Parish Jail. He is charged with felony hit and run.

Livingston Parish School Superintendent John Watson said he has not yet talked to Sibley, but added thoughts and prayers to the families of those involved.

The investigation into the crash continues.
