Wills Point High School student dies, three others injured in wreck on Highway 80

WILLS POINT, Texas — Wills Point ISD community members are mourning after a high school student passed away and three others were injured in a car wreck Tuesday evening. 

Superintendent Dr. Scott Caloss said in a letter Wednesday that the student was killed in a crash on US Highway 80 and the other three passengers are in stable condition at area hospitals. 

According to Wills Point Police Chief Chief Aaron Long, the wreck involved a passenger car and an 18-wheeler on U.S. Highway 80 and F.M. 2965. The four students were all in a passenger car. 

The district has made counselors available Wednesday and for the rest of this week, Caloss said.

"We ask that you show kindness and compassion to those around you as we walk through this together," he said. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the students' families and friends. Just as we have in years past, we will come together as a community to support and remember this student in the coming days."

The driver of the 18-wheeler was evaluated and released at the scene, and the investigation is ongoing, Long said. 

"We as the Wills Point Police Department want to pray for love and healing for all parties involved in this tragic situation," Long said.
