Kelsye Hall sentenced to 2 years for 2011 fiery crash that killed 5

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A woman who was found guilty of five counts of negligent homicide in a deadly road rage crash that claimed the lives of two adults and three children has been sentenced to 19 years total; however, 15 of those years were suspended.

Hall will serve two years hard labor. She was sentenced to two years on hard labor on two counts of negligent homicide that she will serve concurrently (will serve two, sentenced four). She was also sentenced five years each on the other three counts of negligent homicide. Those 15 years were suspended.

The crash happened on I-10 East between Highland Road and Manchac on March 13, 2011, leaving five people from Prairieville dead.

The victims were identified as:

Effie Fontenot, 29

Kimberly Stagg, 19

Keagan Fontenot, 11

Hunter Johnson, 7

Austin Fontenot, 3

Louisiana State Police reported Hall was driving the sport utility vehicle involved in the wreck. Troopers said she was driving ahead of David Leger, 29, of Palmetto, on I-10 West and for some distance, they were both driving recklessly.

It is believed Leger tried to pass Hall, but she wouldn't let him. Investigators suspect Leger's truck clipped the front of Hall's SUV, which sent him across the median.

Authorities said the truck collided head-on with the Acura the victims were riding in and the car burst into flames.

Troopers said Leger is suspected of being impaired at the time of the crash. He is charged with five counts of vehicular homicide. His case has not yet gone to trial.

Hall was found guilty in August 2013. She faced up to 25 years in prison.
