18 Wheeler Hauling Bottled Water Turns Over, LIVINGSTON, July 30, 2017 - At approximately 10:10 pm on July 29, 2017, an 18 wheeler hauling Ozarka bottled water, driven by Daniel Fuentes, 47, of Cleveland, was south-bound on US-59. Fuentes' rig left the pavement to the right and turned over (a short distance south of the Livingston City Limits). Fuentes lost his load when the bottled water tore through the roof of the trailer portion. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department, Livingston Police Department, Deputies from the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Trooper Allen Stanton with the Texas Highway Patrol. Fuentes exited from his wrecked vehicle and was physically okay. The right lane of the south-bound side of 59 was blocked during investigation and cleanup. At time of press, no citations have been issued. It is not yet known why Fuentes lost control of his rig. Riley Wrecker Service out of Corrigan was summoned to clean up the mess.
