Three Hospitalized in Accident, LIVINGSTON, June 24, 2010 - At approximately 4:40 pm on June 24, 2010, a silver 2005 Chevy Malibu driven by Tammy Simmons, 35, of Livingston, was west-bound on US-190 West near First National Bank when she was slammed by a gray 1998 Dodge Neon driven by Lacey Crocker, 26, of Porter. Crocker was exiting a parking lot and failed to yield right of way. She slammed into the front passenger's side fender sending Simmons and her 2 passengers into the grassy median. Crocker's vehicle came to rest in the middle of 190. The Livingston Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to the scene along with Americare Ambulance Service and Officers from the Livingston Police Department including Officer Kevin Blackburn. Simmons was physically okay but her 2 passengers were driven by ambulance to Livingston Memorial Hospital as was Lacey Crocker. Both west-bound lanes of 190 were diverted to the shoulder as the accident was being investigated and cleared. Officer Blackburn cited both drivers for no insurance and Crocker was also cited for failure to yield right-of-way from a private drive and an expired inspection sticker. Both vehicles were recovered by a rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing and will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston. The scene was cleared by 5:20 pm.
