Young Family in Major Accident, Father Flown to Houston, LEGGETT, May 3, 2010 - Shortly before 3 pm on May 3, 2010, a gray 2006 Honda Accord driven by Roberto Eduardo Angeles, 33, of Glenwood, Arkansas, was north-bound on US-59 just south of Leggett. Angeles was traveling in the left lane when a truck pulled in front of him. Angeles swerved to the right and left the road, went up an embankment, went airborne and slammed into a tree and finally spun around as his vehicle came to rest facing US-59. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with DPS Trooper Corporal Sam Lattner and Trooper Kevin Burman. Roberto Angeles, his wife, and 3 kids remained in the car, all with injuries. Angeles' head struck the windshield breaking it. He was carefully removed from his vehicle and loaded onto an ambulance, treated, and transported to Livingston Memorial Hospital where a PHI Helicopter landed and flew him to Hermann Hospital in Houston. Angeles' wife and 3 kids were all transported to Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Traffic on 59 was not blocked during investigation and cleanup. Angeles did have insurance. Angeles could be facing citations for unsafe speed, and no seatbelt. A rollback wrecker from LakeView Wrecker Service recovered Angeles' vehicle and it will be stored in Livingston. The scene was cleared shortly after 4 pm.
