Emergency personnel treated Barker at the scene and loaded him onto an ambulance. Barker was transported to Livingston Memorial Hospital with incapacitating injuries. A PHi Air Medical Helicopter landed at Livingston Memorial and transported Barker to Hermann Hospital in Houston. Traffic on 3277 was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup.
