Motorcycle Crash Hospitalizes Livingston Man, GOODRICH, January 15, 2017 - At approximately 4 pm on January 15, 2017, a white 2012 Yamaha motorcycle, driven by David Baldobino, 42, of Livingston, was north-bound on US-59. Baldobino was apparently coming too fast and stated that he struck a vehicle in front of him from behind. Baldobino lost control and crashed. He was ejected and his motorcycle and himself came to rest in the center median. Fortunately, Baldobino was wearing a proper helmet (helmet had deep impact marks from the pavement). Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Deputy Ronald Bogany with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Troopers Chris Cain and Corporal Ramey Bass with the Texas Highway Patrol. Baldobino appeared to have a leg and arm injury and was transported to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital. One lane of traffic on the north-bound side of 59 was blocked during investigation and cleanup. Baldobino was cited for failure to control speed. A rollback wrecker from Fawbush Body Shop recovered the motorcycle and it will be stored in Goodrich.
