Accident Hospitalizes Driver After He Fails to Yield, GOODRICH, February 27, 2014 - At approximately 12:22 pm on February 27, 2014, a green 1998 Ford Ranger driven by Harold Barker, 64, of Livingston was pulling out of the Family Life Church located off US-59 S (across from the Goodrich truckstop). Barker failed to yield to a south-bound silver 2001 Mercury Marquis driven by Clement Edionseri, 30, of Houston. Edionseri tried to avoid the collision and swerved left, but a glancing blow still occurred. The collision sent Edionseri's vehicle into the crossover between the north and south side of 59 while Barker's vehicle came to rest in the south-bound lanes of traffic. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department and Troopers Barret Duren, Chris Cain, and Chad Seamans (all with the Texas Highway Patrol). Additionally, deputies from the Polk County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to assist. Traffic on the south-bound side was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. Harold Barker was transported by ambulance to Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Edionseri was physically okay. According to Trooper Duren, Barker was cited for failure to yield right-of-way from a private drive. Both vehicles were recovered by Ken's Towing (Edionseri's vehicle will be stored at Harrison Body Shopin Livingston while Barker's vehicle will be stored at Pollock's Body Shop).
