This 1997 Toyota Tacoma, driven by Jose' Arriaga-Hernandez, 62, of Livingston, was sandwiched between 2 vehicles on FM-1988 South (about a mile down from Thomas Supply).
Truck Sandwich and Rollover, LIVINGSTON, July 30, 2019 - At approximately 11:55 am on July 30, 2019, a white 1997 Toyota Tacoma, driven by Jose' Arriaga-Hernandez, 62, of Livingston, was south-bound on FM-1988 South (about a mile down from Thomas Supply). Hernandez began braking for a pickup (pulling a trailer) in front of him that was making a left turn into a private driveway. Hernandez was slammed from behind by a silver 2019 Dodge pickup driven by Robert Sanchez, 22, of Houston. The impact pushed Hernandez's vehicle into the trailer in front of him. Sanchez's vehicle left the pavement to the right, rolled and came to rest upright next to a utility fence. Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Deputy Josh Sanders with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and Troopers Zach Lenderman and Colton McQuilkin with the Texas Highway Patrol. Fortunately, nobody was seriously injured, however both Sanchez and Herandez were transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital as a precautionary measure. Sanchez was cited for failure to control speed. Both vehicles were recovered by Ken's Towing and will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
