As Ainsworth was passing Gray Drive, a white 2013 Ford Expedition, driven by Virgil Taylor, 73, of Livingston, pulled off of Gray Drive directly in front of Ainsworth. The vehicles collided. The impact spun Taylor's vehicle around facing south and went into a ditch on the east-bound side while Ainsworth's vehicle came to rest on the pavement. Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Deputy Marcus Bailey with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Trooper Sean Barnes with the Texas Highway Patrol. Ainsworth suffered a cut on his hand and was treated at the scene by EMS personnel and released. Taylor appeared to be physically okay. Traffic on both sides of 190 was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. Taylor was cited for failure to yield from a stop sign. Ainsworth's vehicle was recovered by Dan's Towing and will be stored in Livingston. Taylor's vehicle was recovered by Country Boy Towing and will also be stored in Livingston.
