Young Houston Woman Flown from Major Accident, NEW WILLARD, December 23, 2013 - At around 12:30 pm on December 23, 2013, a silver 2007 Pontiac Solstice driven by Tiffany Nicole Adams, 30, of Houston, was north-bound on US-59. Her vehicle left the pavement to the left, then she over corrected to the right causing her vehicle to cross both north-bound lanes and leave the road to the right. Her vehicle spun around backward and slammed into a tree. The driver's side door of her vehicle impacted the tree. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department Heavy Rescue Unit, Deputies Mike Nettles, Janie Cain, and Terri Mayer and Troopers Allen Stanton and Sergeant Nita Bowen. Adams was trapped in her vehicle as firemen used the jaws-of-life to extract her from her vehicle. The impact was so bad, (causing severe entrapment) that it took emergency personnel nearly an hour to safely remove her from her vehicle. She was loaded into an ambulance and stabilized for flight. She was then transferred to the care of PHi Air Medical and transported to Hermann Hospital in Houston in extremely critical condition. All traffic on 59 was blocked during flight operations. In addition to major injuries, both of her legs were severely injured. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered her vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston. At time of press, Adams remains in critical condition in Houston.
