Heavily Intoxicated Driver Takes Curve Too Fast, Charged with Felony DWI, LIVINGSTON, May 3, 2013 - Shortly after 5 pm on May 3, 2013, the driver of a white 2001 Chrysler Sebring attempted to negotiate the U-Turn curve underneath the overpass near Livingston Junior High. The vehicle (driven by Julie Ann Johnson, 31, of Montgomery), left the road and slid into the weeds facing south. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Officers Lenneth Gardner and Brandon Brewer with the Livingston Police Department. Fortunately, Johnson, nor her young son were injured. Officer Gardner performed a field sobriety test on Johnson and placed her under arrest for suspicion of driving while intoxicated. The presence of her son in the car (under the age of 15) automatically makes this a felony DWI. Johnson was driven to Livingston Memorial Hospital for a mandatory blood withdrawal. Johnson's vehicle was recovered by Ken's Towing and will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
