When a State Trooper asked 38 year old Tye Coleman Harvey, of Big Sandy, how much he'd had to drink, Harvey stated, "Not enough".
Driver Rolls Pickup, Walks Away, Alcohol Suspected, BIG SANDY, January 6, 2018 - At approximately 6:35 pm on January 6, 2018, gray 2006 Chevy 1500, driven by Tye Coleman Harvey, 38, of Big Sandy, was south-bound on FM-1276. Harvey entered a curved too fast (near T Jacks) and left the pavement to the right. He over corrected left, then back right and left the pavement to the right. Out of control, his truck turned sideways and rolled, coming to rest upside down at the edge of the woods. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Alabama Coushatta Fire Department, Deputy Land with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and Troopers Colton Mcquilkin, Nick Hatton, and Zach Lenderman with the Texas Highway Patrol. Harvey was able to walk from the wreck and sit on the tail gate of a good samaritan's pickup. Troopers spoke to Harvey and asked him how much he had to drink. Harvey stated "Not enough". There was a smell of alcohol and Harvey and he had slurred speech. Harvey opted to be taken to the CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital as a precautionary measure. Harvey is possibly facing a charge for driving while intoxicated. A rollback wrecker from LakeView Towing recovered Harvey's vehicle and it will be stored in Livingston.
