Driver Fails to Yield, Causes Wreck with County Detective, LIVINGSTON, May 11, 2018 - Shortly before 5 pm on May 11, 2018, Detective Dave Sotasante, with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, was west-bound on 190 West next to Livingston Walmart. Sotasante's vehicle suddenly broad sided a silver 2002 Mazda MPV, driven by Adys Aleida Mirabal, 29, of Livingston. Mirabal was east-bound on 190 and attempted a left turn into the Walmart parking lot (west entrance). Mirabal had a green light (BUT NOT A GREEN ARROW). Mirabal pulled directly in front of Sotasante's county issued Chevy Tahoe. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department and Officer Brandon Brewer with the Livingston Police Department. Fortunately, nobody was injured in the accident. Traffic on the west-bound side of 190 was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. Mirabal was cited for failure to yield. Amazingly, both vehicles were driven from the scene.
