Robert Davis' 1988 Plymouth K Car sits totaled in the median after he failed to yield to oncoming traffic on US-59.
Failure to Yield Right-of-Way Totals 2 Vehicles, GOODRICH, May 15, 2011 - At approximately 8:35 pm on May 14, 2011, a blue 1988 Plymouth K Car driven by Robert Davis, 25, of Livingston was at the north end of Loop 393 at a stop sign and attempted to cross over the south-bound lanes of US-59. Davis failed to yield right-of-way to an oncoming white 2005 Toyota Prius driven by Christine K. Calix, 35, of Spring. Calix's vehicle slammed into Davis' vehicle causing both vehicles to come to rest in the median between the north and south-bound lanes of 59. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Corporal Lee Rogers of the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and DPS Troopers David Morris and Kevin Burman. Calix and her small child were transported to Livingston Memorial Hospital to be examined but were otherwise physically okay (as was Davis). One lane of traffic in the south-bound lanes of 59 were blocked during investigation and cleanup. Both vehicles appeared to be totaled. Davis was issued a citation for failure to yield right-of-way from a stop sign. Both parties had insurance. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Calix's vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston while Davis' vehicle was recovered by Fawbush Body Shop and will be stored in Goodrich. The scene was cleared before 10 pm.
