Meeting: School Board Talks About Getting Action From TxDOT

An East Texas school board is hoping the state will do something about a road, they say, claimed the life of one of their students. Sixteen-year-old James Compton, a student at Bullard High School, was killed last week in a car accident along FM 344, just west of Bullard. School officials are calling the stretch of road "dangerous" and they want TxDOT to step in. The school says several local citizens have made requests, but nothing has been done. Now, the school board is hoping they can influence TxDOT to make some improvements.
