1 KILLED IN WRECK — One man was killed Saturday morning in a two-vehicle wreck on Texas 114 west of Boyd near County Road 4593. Texas Department of Public Safety State Trooper Jeff Johnson said a silver Ford passenger car driven by Gary Santoro, 45, of Keller was on the eastbound shoulder of the road when it attempted a U-turn directly into the path of an eastbound Ford pickup driven by Jessie Horton, 32, of Decatur. The pickup struck the car at its driver door, killing Santoro in the impact. The force of the collision sent both vehicles across the road and onto the westbound shoulder. Horton was uninjured. Boyd Volunteer Fire Department, Boyd Police Department, Wise County EMS and the Wise County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene.

MANOUSHAGIAN RUNNING FOR JP 4 — Kent “Bucky” Manoushagian of Bridgeport announced Friday he is running for Precinct 4 justice of the peace in 2018. He’ll be on the Republican ballot in the March 6 primary. Manoushagian said it’s “been his life’s honor to worship, raise a family, work and live in Wise County.” He said he’s not running for a title, but instead to be a public servant. “I wish to further support our law enforcement agencies and first responders and fully believe in respecting and offering dignity to all men, women and children,” he said. Manoushagian is the second Republican candidate to announce he will seek the Precinct 4 JP post. Todd Bailey, also of Bridgeport, announced his candidacy earlier this month. The office is currently held by Clay Poynor of Bridgeport. He has not yet announced his plans for 2018. Read more in the weekend Wise County Messenger on newsstands now.
