Tire tracks in the weeds lead to where a 2006 Chrysler Town & Country, driven by 56 year old Donna Dianne Duke, of Lufkin, left the pavement and went into Choates Creek in South Livingston (Officer Adam Williford with Livingston Police Department in background).
Driver Crashes Into Creek, LIVINGSTON, August 17, 2018 - Shortly before 7 am on August 17, 2018, a blue 2006 Chrysler Town & Country minivan, driven by Donna Dianne Duke, 56, of Lufkin, was south-bound on the US-59 feeder (near Premier Autoplex). As Duke approached the turn around point that goes under 59, her vehicle left the pavement and turned sideways and slid down onto the bank of Choates Creek. A large tree prevented Duke's vehicle from going into the water. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Officers Adam Williford and Jason Thomas with Livingston Police Department. Additionally, Troopers Darwon Evans and Kevin Burman arrived to assist. Duke was loaded into an ambulance and transported to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Traffic was not blocked during investigation and cleanup. No citations have been issued at this time. Duke's vehicle was recovered by LakeView Wrecker and will be stored in Livingston.
