2 Vehicle Accident Hospitalizes 2, LIVINGSTON, April 20, 2016 - At approximately 1:30 pm on April 20, 2016, a white 2012 Chevy Malibu, driven by Ieshea Annett Lane, 24, of Cleveland, was north-bound on US-59. Lane was just south of the Livingston City Limits when the rear half (passenger's side) of her vehicle was broadsided by a white 2006 Dodge Ram 250 pickup driven by Billy Grimes Hill, 82, of Livingston. Hill attempted to cross over the north-bound lanes of 59 to the south-bound lanes (from S. Washington, Camp Cho Yeh exit) but failed to yield to Lane. The impact caused Lane to lose control as her vehicle slid backwards into the center median where it came to rest facing south. Hill stopped his vehicle in the crossover part of 59. Allegiance Ambulance and Americare Ambulance Service were dispatched to the scene along with Officers Kevin Ward and Sergeant Ronnie Bogany with Livingston Police Department and Troopers Ashlee McBride and Donny Akers with the Texas Highway Patrol. Lane and her daughter were transported to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Hill was physically okay. Traffic on 59 was not blocked during investigation and cleanup. Hill is facing a citation for failure to yield right-of-way. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Lane's vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston. Hill drove his vehicle from the scene.
