19 Year Old Female Student Killed in Rollover Accident, SEGNO, April 28, 2017 - At approximately 1:30 pm on April 28, 2017, a white 2001 Chevy 1500 driven by Dakota Renee Goss, 19, of Silsbee, was west-bound on FM-943 (just west of Short Menard Road) when her pickup left the pavement to the right. Goss steered her pickup back onto the pavement, but lost control and left the pavement to the right again and rolled. During the rollover, Goss was ejected from her vehicle. The pickup came to rest upside down at the edge of the woods. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Troopers Sean Chandler, Corporal Ramey Bass, Zach Lenderman, and Nick Hatton. Goss was loaded into an ambulance and transported to a landing zone where a medical helicopter landed and transported her from the scene. Sadly, Goss passed away a short time later (Goss was a student at Sam Houston State University). Goss' ejection from her vehicle during the rollover leads accident investigators to believe NO SEATBELT likely lead to this fatality. Traffic on 943 was not blocked during investigation and cleanup. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Goss' vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
