Terrible Wreck as Driver Tries to Straighten Curve, 2 Flown to Houston, Claims Life of Dog, LIVINGSTON, June 28, 2017 - Shortly before 6 am on June 28, 2017, a dark green 1999 Acura sedan was south-bound on the feeder road of US-59 (near Premier Autoplex). The driver came to the U-Turn underpass and failed to negotiate the curve. The vehicle went straight off the road and down into a drainage area, then shot out and up the embankment on the other side. The vehicle went airborne and slammed roof first into a large oak tree, then dropped to the ground. Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department Heavy Rescue Unit, and Officers Kaleb Barker, Donald Dyson, and Sergeant Ronnie Bogany with Livingston Police Department. Both vehicle occupants (Dineane Rochelle Ducharme, 36, of Galveston, and Anthony Johnson, 43, of Rye) were found on the ground near the car. It is not yet clear who was driving. Both Ducharme and Johnson were transported by ambulance to Livingston Municipal Airport where a medical helicopter landed and transported both to Hermann Hospital in Houston. A dog in the car (boxer) was killed in the accident. Traffic was not blocked during investigation and cleanup. This accident remains under investigation by Livingston Police Department. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered the vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
