Trooper Nick Hatton placed 28 year old Jordon Tees, of Livingston, under arrest.
Vehicles Collide, 1 Arrested, 1 Hospitalized, SPRING CREEK, February 18, 2017 - At approximately 12:10 pm on February 18, 2017, a red 1988 Ford Ranger, driven by Jordon Tees, 28, of Livingston, was at the intersection of US-190 West and Pinckard Road. Tees attempted to cross over 190 from Pinckard to Walding Road, but failed to yield to a west-bound black 2010 Ford Escape, driven by Helen Koester, 65, of Onalaska. Tees broadsided Koester's vehicle. The collision spun Tees' vehicle around facing his opposite direction of travel, while Koester's vehicle came to rest on the shoulder of the east-bound side of 190. Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Deputies Victor White and Terri Mayer with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Trooper Nick Hatton with the Texas Highway Patrol. Koester was transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Tees was physically okay. Traffic on 190 was not blocked during investigation and cleanup. Tees was placed under arrest and was charged with failure to yield right-of-way at a stop sign, no insurance, and no driver's license. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Koester's vehicle and it will be stored at Pollock's Body Shop in Livingston. Tees' vehicle was recovered by LakeView Wrecker and will be stored in Livingston.
