Driver Allegedly Blacks Out, Slams Into Front Porch of Occupied House, LIVINGSTON, March 31, 2014 - At approximately 5:30 pm on March 31, 2014, a tan Chevy Impala driven by Aneitha Wortham, 40, of Livingston was north-bound on Brock Avenue. Wortham came to a T-intersection (meaning she could only turn right or left), but instead, Wortham continued straight ahead as her car drove into a driveway located at 212 Ogletree Street. Her vehicle drove all the way up onto the porch and slammed directly into the front door of an occupied house. Kids who were inside the house were knocked to the floor. Wortham then put her car in reverse and backed into a Chevy Suburban that was parked in the driveway. The accident also ripped the carport of the front of the house as the roof collapsed onto Wortham's car. Wortham had allegedly blacked out (from a possible medical condition). Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Officers Adam Williford, Scott Paske, Kevin Ward, Jason Thomas and Sergeant Ronnie Bogany (All with Livingston PD). Two small children in the home were transported by ambulance to Livingston Memorial Hospital. One child has an injured back, the other child has a broken thumb. Wortham and her child passenger were physically okay. There were two other vehicles at the residence that were lightly struck by Wortham's vehicle. No citations have been issued and the accident remains under investigation by Officer Adam Williford. Wortham's vehicle was recovered by Ken's Towing and will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
