Driver Totals Vehicle, Flees Scene, Bag of Meth Found, GOODRICH, August 20, 2017 - At approximately 9:20 pm on August 20, 2017, passers by were north-bound on US-59 near Stallion Station Road when they spotted a wrecked vehicle in the woods on the right side of the road. The motorists contacted the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Trooper Sean Chandler with the Texas Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene. Additionally, Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched. The vehicle (blue 2006 Hyundai Sonata) was north-bound, left the pavement to the right, jumped a ditch, and slammed sideways into a tree. The driver of the vehicle apparently fled the scene. Trooper Chandler and other emergency personnel searched the vicinity and did not locate the driver. The extensive damage to the vehicle, as well as blood on the interior suggests that the driver is probably injured. During investigation, Trooper Chandler found a bag of methamphetamine in the wreckage. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered the vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston. This accident remains under investigation by the Texas Highway Patrol.
