54 year old Teddy Eubanks, of Dayton, fell asleep at the wheel and slammed a car that was being test driven from Premier Autoplex in Livingston.
Driver Falls Asleep at Wheel, Slams Car That Was Being Test Driven, LIVINGSTON, July 31, 2017 - Shortly after 5 pm on July 31, 2017, Tonya Gibson, of Livingston, was south-bound on the US-59 feeder road (next to McDonalds). Gibson was test driving a 2017 Chrysler 300 when what seemed suddenly, out of nowhere, a tan 2000 Nissan Frontier, driven by Teddy Eubanks, 54 of Dayton, slammed into Gibson's vehicle. Eubanks was south-bound on US-59 and allegedly fell asleep at the wheel. His vehicle struck the back of a south-bound 18 wheeler. The impact caused Eubanks' vehicle to leave the highway to the right, jump the grassy median, and land in the feeder road, impacting the driver's side of Gibson's vehicle (Gibson was test driving her vehicle from Premier Autoplex in Livingston). The impact forced both vehicles into a ditch on the right side of the south-bound feeder. Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Officers Kaleb Barker, Kevin Ward, and Sergeant Ronnie Bogany with the Livingston Police Department. Gibson and Eubanks were both transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Traffic was not blocked during investigation and cleanup. Eubanks was cited for failure to control speed. A rollback wrecker from LakeView Wrecker recovered Gibson's vehicle and it was transported to Premier Autoplex in Livingston. Eubanks' vehicle was recovered by Fawbush Wrecker Service and will be stored in Goodrich.
