Accident Hospitalizes Drivers, LIVINGSTON, January 25, 2023 - At approximately 11:08 am on January 25, 2023, a white 2017 Nissan Maxima, driven by Jana Murphy, 35, of Livingston was west-bound on US-190 West. Murphy impacted the driver's side of a gray 2017 Toyota Camry, driven by Mindi Loret, 61, of Livingston. Loret pulled out of the parking lot of Serenity Pines and failed to yield to Murphy. The impact caused both vehicles to leave the pavement. Loret went through the center median and almost to the east-bound lanes. Murphy's vehicle came to rest in the grass next to the crossover. Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department, a Deputy from the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and Trooper Sean Barnes with the Texas Highway Patrol. Both drivers were transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Loret is likely facing a citation for failure to yield from a private drive.
