A vehicle had crashed in the subdivision of Nugent's Cove. Deputies with the Sheriff's Office were dispatched to the scene along with Trooper David Flowers with the Texas Highway Patrol. According to witnesses, the driver fled the scene on foot. Deputy David Mitchell with the Polk County Sheriff's Office caught up with the driver, Phillip Allen Fielder, 47, of Livingston.
