A 15-year-old boy was killed in a one-vehicle accident on Highway 271 in Red River County Saturday morning.
The fatal accident happened 10:35 a.m. on US 271, one-half mile north of CR 1410 in Red River County. A northbound 2001 Ford F-150 driven by Yovani Bonilla Ugalde, 21, of Cookville, Texas, was towing a 2006 shop-built semi-trailer.
