Driver Broadsides Pickup, Rollover Ensues, LIVINGSTON, August 14, 2016 - Shortly before 3 pm on August 14, 2016, a red 2004 Ford F-150, driven by Vincent Incardona, 57, of Livingston, was north-bound on US-59 just south of the Livingston City Limits when his truck was broadsided by a white 2011 Dodge Dakota driven by Leon Fuller, 84, of Livingston. Fuller attempted to cross over from the south-bound lanes of 59 into the entrance of Lakeside Village, but failed to yield and broadsided the rear half of Incardona's vehicle. The impact caused Incardona to lose control causing his pickup to leave the pavement to the right. According to witnesses, Incardona's vehicle rolled multiple times before coming to rest on its driver's side in the grass. Fuller pulled into the entrance of Lakeside Village where he stopped. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department, Sergeant Glenn Edwards with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Troopers Kyle Daniel and Darwon Evans with the Texas Highway Patrol. Incardona sustained a bruised arm but appeared otherwise okay. Fuller refused medical treatment and appeared to be okay. Incardona was transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital for precautionary reasons. Traffic on the north-bound side of 59 was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. Fuller was cited for failure to yield right-of-way at an open intersection. A rollback wrecker from LakeView Wrecker recovered Fullers vehicle and it will be stored in Livingston. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Incardona's vehicle and it will be stored at Pollock's Body Shop in Livingston.
