Failure to Control Speed, Two Hospitalized, LIVINGSTON, May 27, 2015 - At approximately 4:50 pm on May 26, 2015, a red 2012 Chevy Captiva driven by Summer Margos, 29, of Livingston, was west-bound on US-190 West and was waiting at a red light at 190 and FM-350 South (next to Backyard Oasis), when she was slammed from behind by a 2014 Chevy Sonic driven by Marcia Lafollette, 40, also of Livingston. The impact pushed Margos' vehicle to the left side of the pavement near the weeds as Lafollette's vehicle made a sharp curve right and slammed into a utility box. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department Heavy Rescue Unit, and Officers Adam Williford, Kevin Ward, Scott Paske, and Sergeant Ronnie Bogany (all with Livingston PD). Both Margos and Lafollette were carefully removed from their vehicles and transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Lafollette was cited for failure to control speed. Traffic on the west-bound side of 190 was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. A rollback wrecker from LakeView Towing recovered Lafollette's vehicle and it will be stored in Livingston. Margos' vehicle was recovered by a rollback wrecker from Fawbush Wrecker Service and it will be stored in Goodrich.
