Truck driver dead in Bonham accident


A semi-truck accident Monday afternoon in Bonham caused the death of one truck driver, said Bonham Police Chief Mike Bankston.

Tony Wilkins, 39, of Sumner was driving eastbound on U.S. Highway 82 when he swerved to miss another semi-truck. Wilkins’ truck then veered off the road, flipped and slid into an embankment, crushing the cab.

Wilkins was pronounced dead at the scene, Bankston said. The other driver was not injured.
