Corporal Ramey Bass places 30 year old Michael Miller, of Kountze under arrest as Corporal Jacob Chapman looks on.
Driver and Passenger Arrested in Rollover Accident, LIVINGSTON, July 5, 2014 - At around 9:55 pm on July 4, 2014, a rollover accident was reported to the Polk County Sheriff's Office. A silver 2006 Ford Five Hundred was north-bound on Pratt Road (just north of Livingston City Limits). The driver, Michael Miller, 30, of Kountze, apparently entered a curve too fast and left the road to the left. His vehicle nicked a tree causing the car to roll. The vehicle came to rest upside down in a residential yard at 133 Pratt Road. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Corporal Jacob Chapman and Deputy Adam Norris (both with the Polk County Sheriff's Office) and Corporal Ramey Bass and Sergeant Nita Bowen with the Texas Highway Patrol. Both Miller and his passenger, Cara Edmonds, 19, of Kountze refused medical treatment and were physically unharmed. Corporal Bass conducted a field sobriety test on Michael Miller and placed him under arrest for driving while intoxicated, furnishing alcohol to a minor, and there were warrants out for Miller's arrest. Passenger Cara Edmonds was placed under arrest for public intoxication and minor in consumption of alcohol. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Miller's vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
