4 Vehicle Accident, 2 Flown Out, SODA, July 10, 2016 - At approximately 2:35 pm on July 9, 2016, a maroon 2001 Dodge pickup driven by, Diana Werth, 59, of Dallardsville, was west-bound on 190 East near Richardson Road. Werth was driving on the shoulder and suddenly pulled back into the west-bound lane. Werth failed to yield to green 1999 Ford Explorer driven by Jaylon Miller (female), 23, of Livingston. Miller's vehicle slammed into the back of Werth's vehicle. The impact caused Miller's vehicle leave the pavement to the right and roll 2 times coming to rest upright in the weeds (stay with me, this is kind of like explaining the accident in slow motion). Behind the Miller's vehicle was a white 2015 Ford F-250 driven by Shaun Dunn, 37, of Woodville. Dunn's vehicle also impacted Werth's vehicle (broadside). Werth's vehicle rolled to the other side of the road where it came to rest just off the pavement, Dunn's vehicle was then slammed from behind by a silver 2014 Dodge 1500 driven by Randy Worthey, 58 of Bay City. Dunn's vehicle turned over and came to rest on its driver's side in the weeds to the right of the pavement facing east. Worthey's vehicle also came to rest to the right of the pavement, but facing west. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Livingston, Indian Springs, and Alabama Coushatta VFDs, Deputy Victor White with the Polk County Sheriff's Officer Robert Fuller with the Alabama Coushatta Police Department, and Troopers Kevin Burman and Zach Lenderman with the Texas Highway Patrol. Shaun Dunn and Diana Werth were both transported by ambulance to a landing zone set up in the parking lot of Soda Baptist Church. Both were flown out by PHi Air Medical (We don't know if they were flown to Houston, Conroe, or Lufkin). Werth's 2 passengers, Dunn's passengers (wife and daughter), and Jaylon Miller were all transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Randy Worthey was physically okay. All traffic on 190 was blocked during investigation and cleanup. Werth's vehicle was towed by LakeView Towing and will be stored in Livingston.
