3 Vehicle Accident, Vehicles Smashed, Nobody Injured, LIVINGSTON, June 10, 2016 - At approximately 8:50 pm on June 10, 2016, a white 1996 GMC Pickup, driven by Kimberly Wright, 48, of Livingston was south-bound on US-146. Wright stopped and was waiting to make a left turn into a private driveway when she was slammed from behind by a south-bound tan 2011 Dodge Durango, driven by Cassidy Watson, 20, of Livingston. At that moment, a white 1997 GMC pickup, driven by Tyler Connell, 17, of Livingston, was north-bound on 146 came upon Wright's vehicle (knocked into the north-bound lanes). Connell swerved right to avoid colliding with Wright's vehicle but a collision still occurred as his driver's side slammed into Wright's vehicle. When the wreck was complete, Wright's vehicle came to rest in the north-bound lanes facing south, Watson's vehicle came to rest in the north-bound lanes facing north, and Connell's vehicle came to rest sideways in between the north and south-bound lanes facing east. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Sergeant David Ramsey and Deputy Jason Burleson with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Corporal Ramey Bass with the Texas Highway Patrol. Additionally, Game Warden David Johnson and Trooper David Morris assisted Bass. Amazingly, nobody was injured in the accident. Traffic on 146 was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. The accident remains under ivnestigation by the Texas Department of Public Safety. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Wright's and Watson's vehicles and they'll be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston. Connell's vehicle was recovered by Barnes Towing and will be stored in Livingston.
