Deputy Daniel Sangster detains Jerry Young and Joshua Brown at the scene.
2 Men Charged With Hit & Run and DWI, LIVINGSTON, December 30, 2008 - At approximately 8:30 pm a call came in to the Polk County Sheriff's Office about a vehicle that was running into parked vehicles on Summit Drive on the Scenic Loop. The vehicle, a late model tan Honda CRV was occupied by two men, Joshua Brown, 20 of Livingston, and Jerry Young, 22, of Moscow. The vehicle was being pursued by angry citizens whose vehicles were hit by Young and Brown. In addition units from the Polk County Sheriff's Office and the DPS Office were enroute to locate. The vehicle headed east on 3126 and turned left on 350 south and slammed into a fence by a water supply pump house for the Trinity River Authority. Moments after the crash, Polk County Sheriff's Deputy Daniel Sangster arrived and took Young and Brown into custody. Moments later Deputy Craig Taylor arrived followed by DPS Trooper David Flowers. Both men were heavily intoxicated and one could barely stand up. According to witnesses, when the vehicle was slamming other cars, Joshua Brown was driving, then when the vehicle wrecked at the end of 350 South, Jerry Young was driving. Brown was too intoxicated to take a field sobriety test, however Young took the test and failed. Both men were cuffed and placed under arrest for DWI and Hit & Run. The vehicle was towed by a rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing and it will be stored at Harrison's Body Shop in Livingston. The scene was cleared around 10 pm.
