FM-350 South (south of Florda's Kitchen) on Thursday evening.
Head On Accident, 1 Flown Out, LIVINGSTON, January 11, 2018 - At approximately 6:32 pm on January 11, 2018, a white 2008 Chevy pickup, driven by Earnest Lafay Davis, 61, of Shepherd, was north-bound on FM-350 South (a short distance south of Florida's Kitchen). Davis' pickup crossed the center line and slammed (glancing blow) head on with a black 2002 Chevy pickup driven by Elizabeth Renee Ramsey, 30, of Livingston. Both vehicles came to rest in the middle of the pavement. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department Heavy Rescue Unit, Corporal Javier Segura and Deputy Rey Davalos with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and Troopers Chris Cain, Kevin Burman, Darwon Evans and Colton McQuilkin with the Texas Highway Patrol. Ramsey was transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Davis was trapped in his vehicle. Firemen used the Jaws-of-Life to cut the vehicle away from Davis. Davis was transported by ambulance to Livingston Municipal Airport where a medical helicopter landed and flew him out. All traffic on 350 South was blocked during investigation and cleanup. Davis will likely be cited for causing the accident. Davis' vehicle was recovered by Fawbush Wrecker Service and will be stored in Goodrich. Ramsey's vehicle was recovered by LakeView Wrecker and will be stored in Livingston.
