Nasty Collision in East Polk County, ALABAMA COUSHATTA RESERVATION, November 27, 2011 - At approximately 9:15 pm on November 26, 2011, a tan 1999 GMC Yukon driven by Alec Micayla, 17, of Livingston was west-bound on US-190 near FM-2500 when an east-bound tan 2000 Chevy pickup driven by James Bouras, 20, of Coldspring, attempted a left turn onto 2500 from 190. Bouras failed to yield to Micayla and the two vehicles had a glancing head on collision. Bouras' vehicle remained in place while Micayla's vehicle continued west and spun out facing east about 100 yards away. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Alabama Coushatta Volunteer Fire Department and Corporal Sam Lattner with the Texas Highway Patrol. Lattner was assisted by Trooper Kevin Burman. Fortunately nobody was seriously injured. Traffic was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. According to Corporal Lattner, Bouras was cited for failure to yield right-of-way from a left turn. A rollback wrecker from Harwood Wrecker Service recovered Bouras' vehicle and it will be stored in Livingston while Micayla's vehicle was recovered by a rollback wrecker from LakeView Wrecker service and it will be stored in Livingston. The scene was cleared by 11 pm.
