35 year old Jason Medez, of Conroe, lost control of his Honda motorcycle and crashed in the median on 59 just south of the Livingston City Limits.
Motorcycle Crash, Driver Hospitalized, LIVINGSTON, October 13, 2016 - At approximately 3:30 am on October 13, 2016, a black Honda motorcycle, driven by Jason Mendez, 35, of Conroe, was south-bound on US-59. Mendez was returning from Nashville, Tennessee and says that he swerved to avoid a dog in the road. His motorcycle left the pavement to the left and entered the median where he crashed (across from Enterprise Car Rental). Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Corporal Adam Norris and Deputy Jason Burleson with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and Corporal Ramey Bass with the Texas Highway Patrol. Mendez was wearing a helmet. Mendez was loaded into an ambulance and transported to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries (he possibly has a broken leg). One lane of traffic on the south-bound side of 59 was blocked during investigation and cleanup. No citations were issued to Mendez. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Mendez's motorcycle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
