Livingston Woman Flown from Head On Accident, LIVINGSTON, November 7, 2014 - At approximately 8:55 pm on November 6, 2014, a red 1998 Chevy pickup driven by Cameron Creel, 17, of Livingston, was south-bound on FM-350 South. Creel apparently entered a curve going too fast and veered into the oncoming traffic of the north-bound lane (in front of Florida's Kitchen). Creel's pickup slammed head on into a maroon 2004 Buick LeSabre driven by Chastity Gray, 27, of Livingston. The impact totaled both vehicles. Creel's vehicle came to rest in the middle of the pavement facing sideways. Gray's vehicle was pushed into the grass on the north-bound side of 350. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department Heavy Rescue Unit, Corporal Jacob Chapman with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, Constable Bill Cunningham, and Trooper Donny Akers with the Texas Highway Patrol. Cameron Creel was physically fine, however, Chastity Gray was trapped in her vehicle. Firemen used the Jaws-of-Life to cut the driver's side door from Gray's vehicle and then the roof. Gray was seriously injured as firemen worked for nearly 30 minutes to cut Gray from her vehicle. She was loaded into an ambulance and driven to a landing zone where a PHi Air Medical Helicopter flew her to Hermann Hospital in Houston with major injuries. All traffic on 350 South was blocked during investigation and cleanup. According to Trooper Akers, Creel was cited for failure to maintain a single lane of traffic. Both vehicles were recovered by Ken's Towing and will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston. Special thank you: Ken withKen's Towing
