Americare and Allegiance Ambulance Services were dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department Heavy Rescue Unit, Sergeant Adam Norris with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Troopers John Allen and Chris Cain with the Texas Highway Patrol. Miller and his wife were trapped inside his vehicle. Their two kids managed to crawl out from the vehicle on their own. Both kids were transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
