BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The sentencing of a 33-year-old man in a fiery March 2011 crash that claimed the lives of a woman, her three young boys and her friend has been delayed until August 18.

The sentencing of David Leger, of Palmetto, who state police say was intoxicated at the time of the crash, had originally been scheduled for Thursday. He was found guilty in 2014 of five counts of vehicular homicide.

Troopers say Leger and another driver were caught up in a high-speed game of “cat and mouse,” or road rage, on Interstate 10 when Leger lost control of his pickup, crossed the median and collided into a car driven by Effie Fontenot, of Prairieville.

The Advocate reports 26-year-old Kelsye Hall was convicted of five counts of negligent homicide and sentenced to two years. She is now on probation.
