UPDATE: Victim of Kell/Austin Crash Identified
A single vehicle accident at Kell Blvd and Austin near downtown Wichita Falls has left one man dead.
At 10:18 am, WFPD Officers responded to a one vehicle accident on Kell West between Austin and Burnett. 19 year old Mark Anthony Sanders was westbound in the 1100 block of Kell West in a silver Mercury sedan when he lost control of the vehicle and struck a curb and a tree.
The impact of the crash split the vehicle in half and Sanders was ejected. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash remains under investigation but officials tell News Talk 1290 that speed and wet road conditions are believed to contributing factors. Sanders’ body will be sent to Tarrant County for an autopsy.
