19 year old Jacory Thomas lost control of his Honda Accord and slammed into this pine tree.
Driver Slams Into Pine Tree, Ejected from Vehicle, LIVINGSTON, August 2, 2014 - At approximately 12 noon on August 2, 2014, a gray 2003 Honda Accord driven by Jacory Dwayne Thomas, 19, of Livingston, was south-bound on FM-350 South. Thomas appears to have come out of a curve too fast (just south of Florida's Kitchen) and crossed over the oncoming lane, then continued off the road and slid sideways into a large pine tree impacting the passenger's front side of the vehicle. Thomas' vehicle bounced off the pine tree and slide about 15 yards further in the grass. At some point during the accident, Thomas was ejected through the back windshield of the car and, according to witnesses, suffered a serious head wound. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Deputy Byron Dunaway with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Trooper Allen Stanton with the Texas Highway Patrol. EMS personnel loaded Thomas into an ambulance and transported him to Livingston Memorial Hospital where he was to be flown out by helicopter. During investigation of the accident, Trooper Stanton found multiple packages of what appeared to be fake weed (now illegal in the State of Texas) stuffed in one of his socks. Thomas is facing charges, however the accident remains under investigation by Trooper Stanton. Thomas' vehicle was recovered by Ken's Towing and will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
