The driver of this Toyota was struck by an 18 wheeler then crashed through a steel sign.
One Toyota, Two 18 Wheelers, and Steel Sign, Nobody Injured, LIVINGSTON, March 23, 2016 - At approximately 7:20 am on March 23, 2016, a tan Toyota sedan was south-bound on US-59 (near Campbell Ready Mix). The driver attempted to change to the right lane and had a miscommunication with an 18 wheeler that was behind him and changing to the left lane. The 18 wheeler struck the car causing the car to leave the pavement to the right. The car crashed through steel sign posts and came to rest in the grass. The 18 wheeler pulled to the shoulder. Officers with Livingston Police Department were dispatched to the scene, including Sergeant Ronnie Bogany and Officers Scott Paske and Kevin Ward. While the officers were sorting things out, another south-bound 18 wheeler was coming (right lane) and attempted to change lanes at the last second to stay clear. As the driver looked back to change lanes, he slightly veered into the first 18 wheeler and scraped it. The driver pulled over to the shoulder a short distance further down the road. Amazingly, nobody was injured in the entire incident. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing was summoned to recover the car and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
