GREENSBURG - A grand jury in St. Helena Parish handed up an indictment today for Livingston Parish School Board President Malcolm Sibley in a hit and run case this from this past June.

The indictment was for misdemeanor hit and run for a wreck which happened June 15 around 5 a.m. on La. 43 just north of Greensburg.

Sibley's attorney told News 2 he'll pay the ticket after arraignment on Nov. 8, and said he's very happy with the outcome. He also said Sibley would not resign from the school board.

According to the Attorney General's Office, Sibley was driving north on June 15 when he hit another vehicle. Investigators said the driver, 21-year-old William Cody Iasigi, died because of injuries sustained in the wreck.

A State Police investigation found Sibley didn't stop at the scene, and said evidence and witness statements indicated Iasigi's vehicle was probably on or across the double yellow line at the time of the wreck.
