Montague Co. Honoring Deceased Texoma Trooper

Montague County officials are trying to honor a deceased Texoma Trooper with a memorial highway.

Corporal David Slaton was killed in a crash on September 20th on US highway 81.
Commissioners have submitted paper-work to the Texas Department of Transportation to rename a section of the highway the 'David Slaton Memorial Highway.'
They requested the change from the north city limits of Bowie all the way up to the Texas northern border.

County Judge Tommie Sappington says Corporal Slaton was very involved in the community and was a real role model.
