Reaching for Chicken = 3 Vehicle Accident, Several Hospitalized, SCHWAB CITY, August 30, 2016 - At approximately 4:15 pm on August 30, 2016, a red 2012 Chevy Chevy Silverado, driven by Taylor Evans, 20, of Huntington, was south-bound on US-146. According to Evans, he dropped a piece of chicken and was reaching for it. When he looked up, it was too late and he slammed into the rear end of a white 2011 Chevy Tahoe (146 at Bird Road) driven by Missy Bresko, 35, of Livingston. Bresko's vehicle was knocked into a 2012 Dodge Journey, driven by Angela Ramirez, 45, of Segno. Ramirez had stopped for a school bus. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the South Polk County Volunteer Fire Department, Captain John Sanders, Sergeant Glenn Edwards, and Deputy Josh Sanders with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Trooper Bill Corley with the Texas Highway Patrol. Bresko's passengers were transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. All Traffic on 146 was blocked during investigation and cleanup. Taylor Evans was cited for failure to control speed. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Bresko's vehicle (to be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston), Evans' vehicle (to be stored at Pollock's Body Shop in Livingston), while Ramirez's vehicle was recovered by LakeView Towing and will be stored in Livingston.
