Paris, Texas – A road construction worker was struck and killed by tractor trailer rig Monday near Paris. 20 year old Juan Bernardo Ontiveros of Emory was struck by a southbound rig just before noon Monday along Highway 271 just north of Paris. The truck was driven by a 37 year old Brookston man.

Two civilians stopped and gave Ontiveros CPR, and were able to get a pulse before the ambulance arrived, but Ontiveros was later pronounced dead at the Paris Regional Medical Center.
