56 year old Michael Lee Arnold, of Splendora, rolled this 2003 Toyota Tacoma off US-59 in Livingston in the south end of Livingston.
Vehicle Rolls 5 Times, 3 Hospitalized, LIVINGSTON, June 6, 2016 - At approximately 5 pm on June 6, 2016, a silver 2003 Toyota Tacoma, driven by Michael Lee Arnold, 56, of Splendora, was south-bound on US-59 in the south end of Livingston. Arnold's vehicle hit a pocket of water and began to hydroplane. Arnold's vehicle slid off the pavement to the left, entered the grassy, muddy median and rolled five times. His vehicle came to rest on its driver's side facing north near the north-bound lanes of 59. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department Heavy Rescue Unit, and Officers Scott Paske, Adam Williford, and Detective Marty Drake with Livingston Police Department. Arnold and his two passengers (wife and brother-in-law) were transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Traffic on the north-bound side of 59 was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. Arnold was apparently traveling and an unsafe speed given the conditions of the roads with heavy rain shortly before the accident. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Arnold's vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
