This white Dodge Dakota is allegedly owned by Polk County Publishing
Two Vehicles Containing Multiple LHS Youths Collide on Business 59 and 146, LIVINGSTON, March 7, 2009 - (Due to the accident victims in this report being juveniles, their names will not be listed). At approximately 6:30 pm on March 7th, 2009 a black 2009 Ford truck driven by a 15 year old Livingston Youth was south-bound on Business 59 and was in the turning lane and attempted a left turn onto 146 but failed to yield right-of-way to a older model white Dodge Dakota allegedly owned by Polk County Publishing and driven by a 16 year old Livingston youth. A collision occurred when the Dodge Dakota slammed head on into the Ford. The Dodge went off the road and into a ditch while the Ford remained on the road and was knocked facing west. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene of the accident along with a host of Polk County Sheriff's Deputies and Livingston Police Officers including Officer Ashley Brame. According to Brame, the Ford had 1 Livingston juvenile on board and the Dodge had 2. Both lanes of the north-bound side of Business 59 were blocked and all traffic on 146 was blocked as the accident was being investigated and cleared. The two juveniles in the Dodge were transported to Livingston Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Both parties had insurance. A rollback wrecker from Fawbush Wrecker Service recovered both vehicles and they'll be stored a Fawbush Body Shop on US-59 next door to Lone Star Charlie's. The scene was cleared and traffic fully flowing shortly after 7 pm.
