Rollover Accident Hospitalizes 3, GOODRICH, July 25, 2019 - At approximately 9:30 pm on July 25, 2019, a silver 2003 Honda Pilot, driven by Esmeralda M. Vasquez, 64, of Houston, was south-bound on US-59 in Goodrich. Vasquez had a blow out on her rear passenger's side tire that caused her vehicle to leave the pavement to the left, proceed through the center median, enter the north-bound lanes of traffic and roll. Vasquez's vehicle came to rest upright in the right lane of the north-bound side of 59. Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Goodrich Volunteer Fire Department, Deputy Byron Dunaway with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Troopers Nick Hatton, Allen Stanton, and Donny Akers with the Texas Highway Patrol. Vasquez and her two passengers (one was her husband) were all three transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Traffic on the north-bound side of 59 was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. No citations were issued. Vasquez's vehicle was recovered by Ken's Towing and will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
