Pursuit Ends In Crash, LIVINGSTON, September 25, 2019 - At approximately 11:40 pm on September 24, 2019, a white GMC Sierra, driven by Jacob Thomas Cammack, 52, of Austin, was spotted by a San Jacinto County Deputy driving north on US-59 in the south-bound lanes in the north end of San Jacinto County. When the deputy attempted to stop the vehicle, Cammack chose to ignore. The deputy pursued Cammack. The chase crossed the Trinity River Bridge and entered Polk County as the speed of the chase was about 60 mph. Cammack remained north-bound in the south-bound lanes of traffic. The pursuit continued into Livingston with Polk County Deputies and Livingston Police entering the chase. Trooper Colton McQuilkin with the Texas Highway Patrol successfully spiked Cammack's tires just before the north overpass in Livingston (next to the Junior High School). Cammack's vehicle struck the rear tires of a south-bound 18 wheeler. The impact totaled Cammack's pickup. Cammack stated that he was driving to Austin. Cammack was transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. All traffic on the south-bound side of 59 was blocked during investigation and cleanup. His vehicle was recovered by Fawbush Wrecker Service and will be stored in Goodrich. Cammack is likely facing multiple charges. This incident remains under investigation.
