Dwight Perrilloux out of jail on bond
DONALDSONVILLE - A property bond posted Friday allowed Dwight Perrilloux, accused of being on drugs, driving and causing a deadly crash, to be released from jail in Ascension Parish.
Jailers confirmed Perrilloux was released on a property bond but could not disclosed what was used to front the $151,144 bail. It was set Wednesday, a day after the crash where Claire Carline died and her two sisters, Camille and Colleen, were injured.
The surviving daughters needed arm and back surgery to correct serious breaks, a result of injuries sustained in the crash.
State Police charged Perrilloux with DWI, vehicular homicide, vehicular injuring and reckless operation charges.
A WBRZ inquiry into his past found he had previous drug charges.
The crash happened on Highway 74 near the I-10 overpass as the girls were headed to school Tuesday morning at Dutchtown High. Investigators said Perrilloux crossed the center line and hit the Carlines' car head-on while trying to avoid rear-ending cars that were stopped in traffic ahead of him.
