Traffic on the south-bound side of 59 was blocked.
Driver Rolls Vehicle, Flown From Scene, LIVINGSTON, July 4, 2016 - At approximately 11:30 pm on July 3, 2016, a red Toyota Yaris, driven by Juliana Calle, 26, of Tampa, Florida, was north-bound on US-59 South of Livingston. Calle's vehicle left the pavement to the left, went into the median and began to roll end over end. Her vehicle rolled into the south-bound lanes of 59 where it came to rest upside down. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department Heavy Rescue Unit, Sergeant Craig Taylor with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and Troopers Zach Lenderman, Brooke Lathan, Darwon Evans and Kevin Burman with the Texas Highway Patrol. Calle was trapped in her vehicle. Firemen used the Jaws-of-Life to pull a door off of her vehicle in order to carefully remove her. She was treated at the scene. A landing zone was set up on the south-bound side of 59 where a PHi Air Medical Helicopter landed. Calle was flown to Conroe Regional Hospital with serious injuries. All traffic on the south-bound side of 59 was blocked during investigation and cleanup. It is not known why Calle's vehicle left the pavement. No citations have been issued. The accident remains under investigation by the Texas Department of Public Safety. A rollback wrecker from LakeView Towing recovered Calle's vehicle and it will be stored in Livingston.
