WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Following a pin-in crash, a man is now fighting for his life after being flown to the hospital on November 12, 2023.

The pin-in accident happened at the 1300 block of Harding Street, which was shut down as Wichita Falls Police worked the wreck scene Sunday afternoon.

A 35-year-old male was driving a vehicle traveling westbound on Harding at an excessive rate of speed.

The firefighters extracted him from the vehicle, and he was transported by helicopter to John Peter Smith Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

At the time of the crash, the man was the only occupant in the vehicle, and authorities are not sure if he was wearing a seatbelt.

The incident is still under investigation.
