LIVINGSTON – A slick rear tire resulted in fatal injuries for a 57 year old Lufkin man. Jerry Lee Mashburn was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident which occurred at approximately 4 p.m. Saturday about a mile north of Seven Oaks on U.S. Hwy 59. Mashburn was northbound on a 1987 Kawasaki Voyager motorcycle when his rear tire blew out and he lost control, left the roadway and was ejected from the bike.

A 2000 Ford F-150 driven by Kyle Franklin Good, 38, of Onalaska was northbound on FM 3277 approaching the intersection of FM 2457 at 12:30 a.m. on Nov 5. According to police reports Good disregarded the flashing light and stop sign, crossed FM 2457 and entered the woods for a short distance before striking a tree. Good was transported to Memorial Medical Center - Livingston with incapacitating injuries.

Erica Kay Curnutte, 18, of Livingston and a 14 year old passenger were taken by ambulance to Memorial Medical Center-Livingston after the 2000 Ford Expedition in which they were traveling flipped when Curnutte took evasive action to avoid striking a dog that had entered the roadway.

Texas Department of Public Safety records show at least 13 reported deer-related automobile accidents since the beginning of October. Motorists are reminded to watch for deer standing near or entering the roadway at night and in the early morning hours.
