18-wheeler-livingstonLivingston, TX (May, 14 2019) – A man was critically injured after an 18-wheeler crossed the center median on U.S. Highway 59 south of Livingston.

The two-vehicle collision happened on Monday around 2:30 p.m. Tom Moravee, 49, was driving a 2016 Freightliner truck tractor-semi-trailer rig north in the inside lane of Highway 59.

Crash investigators believe the 18-wheeler’s left tire blew out causing the truck to travel through the center median and into the northbound lanes of traffic, where it struck a 2019 Volkswagen passenger car driven by Steven West, 67, of Humble.

Mr. West was transported by a medical helicopter to a Houston hospital for treatment of his injuries. Mr. West’s passenger was taken to CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial in Livingston.

Mr. Moravee was not injured in the wreck.

The crash remains under investigation.
