Car Has Head-on Collision With Logging Truck, ALABAMA COUSHATTA TRIBE, May 7, 2016 - At approximately 6:30 am on May 7, 2016, a red 2007 Pontiac G8 was north-bound on FM-2500 less than a mile from US-190 East. The vehicle crossed the center line and had a head-on collision with a loaded logging truck. The impact caused the car to leave the pavement to the right while the driver of the logging truck lost control and turned over, losing its load, and coming to rest a short distance further down the road. Both vehicles were totaled. Americare and Allegiance Ambulance Services were dispatched to the scene along with the Alabama Coushatta Volunteer Fire Department, the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department Heavy Rescue Unit, and the Alabama Coushatta Police Department. The driver of the car was trapped in his mangled vehicle. Emergency personnel were able to free the passenger fairly quickly. Firemen from Livingston used the Jaws-of-Life to cut the roof off of the car and eventually free the driver. The driver and passenger were treated at the scene. The driver was eventually driven by ambulance to a landing zone where a PHi Air Medical Helicopter landed and flew him to Houston. The passenger was driven by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital. The driver of the logging truck was physically okay. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered the car and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston. A heavy duty wrecker was summoned to clean up the mess from the logging truck.
(Editor's Note: This accident was investigated by the Alabama Coushatta Police Department. Names of the vehicle occupants, or charges haven't been released).
