Traffic on 190 was not blocked during investigation, recovery and cleanup. Jay Workman was a longtime local respected Chiropractor. Justice of the Peace David Johnson performed an inquest at the scene. Workman was the only person in the vehicle. Workman was loaded into a first call car from Cochran Funeral Home. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Workman's vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston. The scene was cleared by 3:30 am.
