Accident Hospitalizes Livingston Woman, FOREST HILLS LOOP, February 27, 2016 - At approximately 4:30 pm on February 27, 2016, a red 2002 Toyota Tacoma driven by Brenda Tremblay, 53, of Livingston, was west-bound on US-190 West. Tremblay stopped to make a left turn onto Forest Hills Loop when she was slammed from behind by a white 2000 Chevy 2500 driven by Andre Lilley 49, of Cleveland. Lilley was also west-bound behind Tremblay when he apparently failed to notice that Tremblay was stopped. Lilley applied his brakes. His pickup began to veer right as his driver's side collided with the rear end of Tremblay's vehicle. Lilley's vehicle came to rest on the right side of 190 (wb side) while Tremblay's vehicle came to rest on the opposite side of the pavement. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Onalaska Volunteer Fire Department, Deputy Terry Valka with the Polk County Sherrif's Office, and Troopers Kevin Burman and Darwon Evans with the Texas Highway Patrol. Brenda Tremblay was reportedly knocked unconscious. Tremblay was transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital. Lilley was physically okay. Traffic on 190 was not blocked during investigation and cleanup. Lilley was cited for failure to control speed. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Lilley's vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston. Tremblay's vehicle was recovered by a rollback wrecker from George White & Sons Wrecker Service and will be stored in Onalaska.
