Two people are in jail for charges relating to criminal conspiracy and injuring public records following a hit and run crash investigation in Vermilion Parish.
State police say they investigated a single vehicle crash on LA Highway 91 near LA Highway 714 on November 10.
The initial investigation indicated that a 2010 Dodge Ram was traveling north on LA 91 at a high rate of speed. For reasons unknown, the driver of the truck traveled off the right side of the road and struck an embankment causing the truck to overturn several times. The investigating Troopers spoke with 23-year-old Kristian Hebert of Gueydan at the scene. Hebert claimed to be the driver of the truck.
In the following days Troopers continued to investigate the circumstances of the crash. Troopers determined there were three other people in the truck when it crashed. They located one of the occupants, 27-year-old Carrie J. Sensat of Egan, at a local hospital. She told Troopers she was the front seat passenger when the crash occurred.
As the investigation furthered, Troopers obtained information that Sensat was actually the driver of the truck and Hebert was the front seat passenger. Neither Sensat nor Hebert were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. The other two occupants in the vehicle, both juveniles, sustained moderate injuries. They provided accurate statements to Troopers.
Based on the information Troopers gathered, arrest warrants were issued for Sensat and Hebert.
Sensat was arrested at a residence in Crowley without incident.
She was booked into the Vermilion Parish Jail for reckless operation of a motor vehicle, hit and run, 3 counts of negligent injuring, criminal conspiracy, injuring public records, interfering with a State Trooper and no seat belt.
Hebert was arrested at his home in Gueydan without incident. He was booked into the Vermilion Parish Jail for criminal conspiracy, injuring public records, interfering with a State Trooper and no seat belt.
