According investigating Troopers, Hall and Leger were westbound on I-10 both of whom were driving in an erratic and reckless manner. Leger attempted to pass Hall; however, Hall continued to prevent Leger from passing her vehicle. According to witnesses, Hall at one point was straddling the centerline of the interstate in an effort to prevent Leger from passing.

Leger reentered the right lane clipping the front of Hall’s SUV causing him to lose control and travel across the median.
