A broken utility pole and a wrecked truck: EMS personnel work the scene.
Livingston Youth Sustains Serious Injuries in Rollover Accident, LIVINGSTON, March 20, 2010 - Shortly before 3 am on March 20, 2010, a white 2004 Chevy Z71 Truck driven by Jesse Clamon, 20, of Livingston, was north-bound of FM-350 South when he entered a curve by Kate Lowe Road. Clamon was in the south-bound lane when a south-bound car came around the curve. Clamon avoided a head-on collision by cutting his wheels back to the right lane but in the process lost control of his truck and slammed head-on into a telephone pole. The collision literally snapped the pole in half as the truck tumbled into the weeds on the right side of 350. Clamon's truck came to rest upright facing south and Clamon was ejected from the truck. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along Deputy Jamie Buie the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department and DPS Trooper Darwon Evans. Clamon suffered a compound fracture of his lower left leg (calf) and other injuries. EMS Personnel treated Clamon on the ground and eventually loaded him onto an ambulance and transported him to Livingston Memorial Hospital. A major concern was the power lines from the utility pole that on the ground, entangled in the truck, and draped across the road. Workers from SHECO arrived in a bucket truck to shut the power off, repair the lines, and eventually restore power. Traffic on 350 South was narrowed down to 1 lane and monitored by Deputies. According to witnesses there was a smell of alcohol at the scene and pending toxicology reports, Clamon could be facing a citation for DWI. Clamon was issued a citation for driving on the wrong side of the road in a no passing zone. Clamon did have insurance. A rollback wrecker from Fawbush Body Shop recovered Clamon's vehicle and it will be stored in Livingston. The scene was cleared by 6 am.
