Texoma Honors The Late Corporal David Slaton

The late State Trooper Corporal David Slaton is being honored today.

A portion of Highway 81 in Montague County has been named after him.

The 56-year-old trooper died when his patrol car hit a cow on U.S. 81 in September of 2010. The impact forced his patrol car to move into oncoming traffic where he hit a semi-truck.
