First responders use the Jaws-of-Life to free a passenger from a 2005 Nissan Titan.
2 Vehicle Accident Hospitalizes 3, LIVINGSTON, August 10, 2016 - At approximately 9:20 pm on August 9, 2016, a white 1998 Chevy pickup driven by Raymond Meyer, Jr., 63, of Goodrich, was south-bound on the feeder of US-59 in Livingston. As Meyer came to the intersection of 190 (West Church) and 59 he had a green light to proceed through the intersection but was slammed on the front driver's side of his vehicle by a black 2005 Nissan Titan driven by a local 16 year old female from Livingston. The Nissan was west-bound on 190 and drove through a red light. The impact spun the Nissan around to face east while Meyers' vehicle slammed into a traffic light pole. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department Heavy Rescue Unit and Sergeant Chad Ward, and Officers Adam Williford and Tito Reyes with the Livingston Police Department. Meyers was trapped in his vehicle as was the driver of the other vehicle and her passenger. Firemen used extraction equipment to free both parties. All three vehicle occupants were transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Traffic on both sides of 190 was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. The driver of the Nissan will be cited for running the red light. Both vehicles were recovered by Ken's Towing and will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
