Vehicle Rollover in Seven Oaks, SEVEN OAKS, June 27, 2009 - According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, at approximately 1:05 pm on June 26, 2009, a red 1998 Chevy Blazer driven by Elizabeth Joyce Randolph, 35, of Orangevalle, California was north-bound on US-59 in Seven Oaks with her husband, when a tire blew out. Randolph's vehicle entered the center median, rolled 1 time, and landed upright. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with, Livingston Volunteer Fire Department, Polk County Sheriff's Deputy Christian Schanmeier and DPS Trooper Sam Lattner. Neither Randolph nor her husband were injured in the harrowing experience. A small fire was somehow ignited under the vehicle, but a passer by with a water tank quickly extinguished the fire before the vehicle could ignited. Traffic was not blocked during investigation and cleanup. Both Randolph and her passenger had their seatbelts fastened. Randolph had insurance and no citations were issued. A rollback wrecker from Riley Wrecker Service recovered Randolph's vehicle and it will be stored in Corrigan. The scene was cleared by 1:55 pm.
A special thank you to Polk County Sheriff's Deputy Christian Schanmeier.
