Driver Rolls Car on Unpaved Road, Flown Out, MT. ROSE, May 4, 2016 - Shortly before 5 pm on May 4,. 2016, a 1994 Toyota Previa (minivan) driven by Heather Renee Webb, 26, of Lufkin, was south-bound in the 2600 block of Kate Lowe Road (less than a mile from FM-1988 South). Webb was apparently driving too fast on the unpaved road and left the road to the right. Her vehicle's front end caught the ground and caused it to spin around facing north and turn over on its driver's side. Webb's left arm was caught between the road and her vehicle. According to witnesses, the woman was pinned down. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department, deputies with the Polk County Sheriff's Office including Jacob Hopper, Terri Mayer, Victor White, Corporal Mark Dubose, and Sergeant Jason Paske, and Corporal Ramey Bass with the Texas Highway Patrol. When Corporal Bass arrived, Webb managed to pull her arm free. Bass opened the rear hatch of the minivan and Webb crawled out. Her left arm was grossly injured. Deputy Jacob Hopper applied a tourniquet to help slow down the bleeding. Webb was writhing in pain. She was transported to a landing zone and flown out (we don't know if she was flown to Conroe, Houston, or Lufkin). Kate Lowe road was completely blocked during investigation and cleanup. Webb is facing citations for unsafe speed, no driver's license, and no insurance. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Webb's vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
