Kyandus Boyd of Houston Gathers his belongings after a harrowing rollover accident.
Rollover Accident on US-59, LIVINGSTON, November 28, 2008 - At approximately 8:45 pm on November 28, 2008 a late model white Chevy Malibu driven by Kyandus Boyd, 22, of Houston, was south-bound on US-59 when his passenger's side rear tire tread separated from the tire and he lost control of his vehicle. Boyd's vehicle left the road to the left and went through the grassy median where it rolled over and nearly entered the lanes on the north-bound side. The vehicle came to rest upside down partially in the grass and partially on the shoulder of the north-bound side of 59. Livingston Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to the scene, in addition Livingston Police Officers Jason Thomas, Scott Paske, and Ashley Brame along with DPS Troopers Nita Bowen, David Morris, and Chris Stanbery and Polk County Sheriff's Deputy Jamie Buie were all dispatched to the scene. Fortunately, nobody was hurt in the accident and Boyd and his passenger were okay. One lane of 59 North was blocked as the accident was being investigated and cleared. No citations were issued and Boyd did have insurance. A rollback wrecker from Harrison's Wrecker Service arrived to recover the vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison's Body Shop in Downtown Livingston. The scene was cleared and traffic fully flowing shortly before 9 pm.
Tread separation from this tire is believed to have caused the accident.
