Unsafe Lane Change Leads to Rollover, 1 Hospitalized, LIVINGSTON, May 19, 2016 - At approximately 11:20 am on May 19, 2016, a red 2003 Ford Explorer, driven by Constance Burgess, 27, of Jasper, was east-bound on US-190 West. Burgess suddenly had to take evasive action to avoid a collision with a black 1997 Chevy 1500 pickup driven by Raymond A. Marsh, 38, of Livingston. Marsh was in the slow lane and allegedly attempted to change into Burgess' lane but failed to yield to Burgess. Burgess swerved left, over corrected right, then over corrected left again. At some point their vehicles collided. Burgess' vehicle left the pavement to the left and rolled coming to rest on its driver's side facing her opposite direction of travel. Marsh pulled his vehicle to the right of the pavement into the grass. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Troopers Darwon Evans, Kevin Burman, and Corporal Ramey Bass. Burgess was removed from her vehicle and transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Marsh was physically okay. One lane on the east-bound side of 190 was blocked during investigation and cleanup. Marsh was cited for changing lanes when unsafe. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Burgess' vehicle and it will be stored at Harrsion Body Shop in Livingston. Marsh drove his vehicle from the scene.
