EMS personnel tend to 46 year old David Fulcher, of Coldspring. Fulcher was a pedestrian who tried to cross 190 West (about a quarter mile east of the Corner Shell), and was struck by a car Saturday evening.
Pedestrian Struck by Car on 190 West, LIVINGSTON, July 20, 2019 - At approximately 9:30 pm, on July 20, 2019, a red 2009 Chevy Aveo, driven by Dylan Cunningham, 18, of Webster, was west-bound on US-190 West (about a quarter mile east of the Corner Shell). According to Cunningham, a person suddenly appeared in front of his car and there was no way to avoid him. The car struck the pedestrian, David Fulcher, 46, of Coldspring. Fortunately for Fulcher, the car only grazed him, however, the graze was hard enough to knock Fulcher into the center median. Fulcher had attempted to cross the west-bound lanes on foot in an illegal crossing zone, to the east-bound side and failed to yield to Cunningham's vehicle. Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Sergeant Adam Norris with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and Troopers Colton McQuilkin and Zach Lenderman with the Texas Highway Patrol. Fulcher was transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Fulcher was cited for unsafe crossing in a no crossing zone. Cunningham's vehicle sustained almost no damage and was driven from the scene.
