Bond set for driver accused in deadly DWI crash
DONALDSONVILLE- A 19-year-old accused of being on drugs, driving and causing a wreck that killed a teenager and severely injured her two sisters remains in jail in Ascension Parish but now has a bond.
Dwight Perrilloux's bond was set at $151,144 Wednesday. Perrilloux faces DWI, vehicular homicide, vehicular injuring and reckless operation for the crash that killed Claire Carline and injured her sisters Camille and Colleen.
Camille had surgery Tuesday evening on shattered bones in one of her arms; Colleen underwent surgery for a broken back.
Camille was driving her two sisters to school Tuesday morning when State Police say Perrilloux crossed the center line of Highway 74 to avoid hitting traffic stopped in his lane and hit the Carlines' car head-on.
