Driver Slams Into Tree, Alcohol Suspected, GOODRICH, March 1, 2014 - At approximately 2 am on March 1, 2014, a red Ford Fusion driven by Taylor Dewayne Morris, 27, of Goodrich, was west-bound on FM-1988 East (about a mile east of US-59). Morris apparently entered a curve going too fast and left the road to the right. Morris' vehicle slammed into a large pine tree. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department Heavy Rescue Unit and Troopers Darwon Evans and Kevin Burman (both with the Texas Highway Patrol). Morris was pinned inside his car by the caved in roof and his legs were pinned under the crushed metal. Firmen used the Jaws-of-Life to cut the roof off of Morris' vehicle and to bend the metal back to free Morris' legs. A medical helicopter was called for, but due to weather conditons, couldn't fly. Morris was carefully pulled from the vehicle and taken to Livingston Memorial Hospital by ambulance. Troopers found beer and whiskey on the interior of Morris' vehicle. There was also a heavy smell of alcohol coming from inside the totaled vehicle. According to investigating officer, Trooper Darwon Evans, Taylor Dewayne Morris is being charged with driving while intoxicated (his second), open container of alcohol, driving with an invalid driver's license, and no insurance. Morris' vehicle was recovered by Ken's Towing and will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
