Local 16 Year Old Rolls Vehicle, Possibly Intoxicated, Resists Help, ALABAMA COUSHATTA COUNTRY, May 17, 2014 - At approximately 4:30 pm on May 17, 2014, a brown 1999 Chevy Blazer driven by a 16 year old boy from Indian Springs was east-bound on US-190 East. For some reason his vehicle veered to the right and left the pavement, rolled through the grass, up an embankment, came back down the embankment, re-entered the pavement and rolled. His vehicle came to rest upside down on the west-bound side of 190. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Officers from the Alabama Coushatta Police Department and Troopers Kevin Burman and Darwon Evans with the Texas Highway Patrol. The driver didn't appear to have any serious injuries, but was exhibiting erratic and incoherent behavior as he resisted help from EMS personnel and police. The youth had to be restrained in order to be loaded onto an ambulance. He was transported by ambulance to Livingston Memorial Hospital. Traffic was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. The accident remains under investigation by Trooper Kevin Burman. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered the vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shopin Livingston.
