Around 10:20 Thursday morning, police were called to a house on Kell West at Austin. That's where 19-year-old Mark Anthony Sanders, driving a silver Mercury sedan, lost control, hit the curb and a tree in the front yard of the house.
The impact of the crash split the vehicle in two and ejected Sanders from the vehicle. Police say he was the only person in the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Sgt. John Spragins with the Wichita Falls Police Department said, "Obviously there's a lot of destruction back here with the car and preliminary causes are that high speed and the wet road are contributing factors to the crash."
Roads near the scene were closed for several hours today while investigators process the scene.
Sanders' body will be sent to Tarrant County for an autopsy.
