A Monument To Trooper David Slaton

A Texas DPS Trooper killed while on duty, is being honored in a special way.

A monument with DPS Trooper David Slaton's name was dedicated Monday Morning at the DPS office in Bowie.

Slaton was killed this past September after his patrol car hit a cow.

The impact forced Slaton's vehicle into on-coming traffic, where he then hit a semi head on.

A portion of US Highway 81 was also renamed in honor Corporal Slaton's life.
