January 19, 2019

LIVINGSTON, TN. – According to an online news article reported at livingstonenterprise.net,a driver was cited after a vehicle wreck in Livingston, Tennessee, injured six people on January 6. Little information about the wreck has been released at this time, but the at-fault driver has been identified by officials.* 

The vehicle accident occurred on Sunday, January 6, though it is not clear what time that day. A 2010 Buick LaCrosse was traveling east on Hilham Highway in Livingston, Tennessee. Near the area of Tennessee Avenue, the driver of the Buick entered another lane and crossed into the path of travel of another vehicle. It is not clear if the Buick driver crossed the centerline of the road into the westbound lanes or traveled into another eastbound lane on the highway. 

The Buick then collided with another vehicle. The make and model of the second vehicle were not reported. The cause of the accident has not yet been determined. Reports did not indicate why the Buick driver failed to maintain a lane or failed to see the second vehicle. 

Six people in the two vehicles were injured in the crash. It appears this accounted for every occupant of both vehicles. The extent of their injuries is not known, and it is not clear if anyone or everyone required medical attention beyond the scene. No one except the Buick driver has been identified.

The Buick driver was identified as 71-year-old Veachel White, of Monroe, Tennessee. Law enforcement officers issued White a citation for failure to exercise due care. No additional information has been reported at this time.
