    A 37 year old male was killed after losing control of his white Chevrolet pickup early Saturday morning.

    According to police on scene, the man was traveling at a high rate of speed south bound around a curve just past South 7th and Barrow St.

    They say he then ran into a curb, and flipped his truck which threw him from the vehicle.

    He was pronounced dead by the Taylor County Justice of the Peace at 4 a.m.

    Witnesses at the scene also said that the man was traveling at a high speed right before the accident.

    ABILENE, Texas -

    A teacher from Bonham Elementary has been cleared to return to work Monday after being on a cruise ship with a hospital worker who came in contact with lab work for Ebola victim Thomas Duncan.

    “The teacher that will return to school in AISD has been completely cleared,” said Heath Burns, AISD Superintendent, “There is no threat of contagion in the district anywhere at this point and we don’t anticipate the event of any threat in the future.”

    While on the ship, the hospital worker was isolated from all other 4,100 passengers including the Bonham teacher.

    The worker was monitored and eventually tested negative for the virus.

    The teacher was cleared by local, county, as well as national health officials to resume normal activities.

    “All persons on that cruise ship were cleared,” said Burns, “There were no identifications of the virus on the cruise ship or with any of the passengers.”

    To inform parents that the teacher was cleared to resume work, AISD sent a letter to parents informing them about the situation.

    “The letter carefully states that there is no risk…” said Phil Ashby, Spokesman for AISD, “… The letter was necessary to let parents know that we are not trying to hide anything from them. We knew there were some precautions that they would probably want us to do in this case so we took them.”

    “We are all fortunate that there wasn’t anything to worry about,” said Ashby.

    Although the teacher was cleared when the teacher arrived back in Texas, AISD took an extra precaution and gave her an extra week off.

    AMARILLO, Texas -

    Officials say a pastor at a Texas Panhandle church has resigned after being arrested on a prostitution charge.

    The Potter County Sheriff's Office says Cameron Tate Reeves was arrested on the misdemeanor charge at an Amarillo motel on Thursday.

    The Amarillo Globe-News reports the 34-year-old Reeves was a pastor for Hillside Christian Church's campus in the town of Canyon, where he had served since 2009. Canyon is located about 20 miles south of Amarillo.

    Reeves was released from jail after posting a $1,000 bond. Jail records did not list an attorney for him.

    In a statement, Hillside Christian Church said Friday that Reeves had turned in his resignation and that the church was "saddened by this situation."

    HOUSTON (AP) -

    A registered sex offender in Houston is charged with raping a 14-year-old girl and a 2-year-old girl and infecting them with HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

    The 33-year-old man was charged this week with super-aggravated sexual assault of a child and sexual assault of a child. Houston police say he raped his ex-girlfriend's teenage daughter and his infant niece.

    The investigation began in 2013 when the younger child was brought to the Texas Medical Center. Both victims were infected with herpes and doctors had to preform reconstructive surgery on the younger child.

    The suspect was sentenced to four years in prison in 2004 after sexually assaulting a different child.
