Vehicle Slams Into Mobile Home, GOODRICH, March 20, 2015 - At approximately 8:05 pm on March 20, 2015, a tan 2000 Ford Explorer driven by Phillip Ward, 22, of Splendora, was east-bound on FM-1988 West and entered a curve too fast on the wet pavement. Ward's vehicle left the road to the left and slid through a yard and finally slammed into the corner of a mobile home at the entrance of Shiloh Ridge subdivision. The impact caused the vehicle to spin around and come to rest in the front yard facing its opposite direction of travel. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Deputy Edward Thomas with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Trooper Chad Seamans with the Texas Highway Patrol. Ward and his two passengers were treated at the scene and transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Traffic on 1988 was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. According to Trooper Seamans, Phillip Ward was cited for unsafe speed and no insurance. A rollback wrecker from Kwik Tow out of New Caney recovered Ward's vehicle.
