Wet roads lead to fatal crash in Rusk Co. on Sunday

Posted: Updated:
A Henderson man was killed in a single-vehicle accident early Sunday morning after the truck he was driving skidded off the road.

Department of Public Safety Trooper Jean Dark said 36-year-old Bradley Boykin was driving on Farm to Market Road 783 in Rusk County about eight miles south of Tatum when his 2012 Dodge 2500 went off the road and skidded sideways into several trees before rolling on its side.

Dark says it was raining and the road was wet when the crash occurred.

Boykin was pronounced dead by Rusk County Justice of the Peace Jerdy Wolverton. His body was taken to Rader Funeral Home in Kilgore.
