Boy involved in Tenaha wreck dies

SHREVEPORT, LA. (KTRE) - The boy involved in the Tuesday wreck in Tenaha was taken off life support around midnight Wednesday morning and died shortly thereafter, according to a spokesman with Tenaha ISD.

Nathan Cooks, 5, and his sister, JaLyric Boykin, 6, and their aunt, Danielle Cooks, 14, were hit by a pickup truck which swerved to avoid two vehicles which were stopping for an incoming school bus. The three children were waiting for the bus.

Boykin was pronounced dead yesterday at a Center hospital.

Danielle Cooks is in stable condition at a Tyler hospital. Tenaha High School Principal Scott Tyner said she is expected to recover.

According to an e-mail statement released by Tenaha ISD, anyone who wants to offer assistance to the family may contact the school district's administrative offices. Counselors are at the schools offering their services to students who need help.

"TISD, once again, would like to thank the ever-so-many who have offered their condolences and support, as well as the offer of counseling services," the statement said.
