Driver Crosses Center Line, Strikes Dump Truck, Intoxication Suspected, BLANCHARD, May 7, 2019 - At approximately 11:15 am on May 7, 2019, a dump truck, driven by Glen Nerill, 61, of Onalaska, was west-bound on FM-3126 (very close to RB Lake Grocery), when a east-bound black 2014 Ford F-150, driven by Harry Stevens, 48, of Livingston, crossed the center line. Nerill cut right to avoid a head on. Stevens' vehicle impacted the rear tires of Nerill's dump truck. Both vehicles came to rest in the middle of the road. Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Scenic Loop Volunteer Fire Department, Deputy Ronald Bogany with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and Corporal Ramey Bass with the Texas Highway Patrol. Stevens appeared to be heavily intoxicated. During a vehicle inventory, Deputy Bogany found cold beer, syringes, and a crack pipe with residue in Stevens' pickup. As a precautionary measure, Stevens was transported to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital by ambulance. All traffic on 3126 was blocked during investigation and cleanup. Stevens is likely facing several charges (including at least one felony) in this incident. Additionally, there was a warrant out for Stevens' arrest. Stevens' vehicle was recovered by Ken's Towing and will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston. The dump truck was recovered by Williamson Services out of Goodrich.
