Business owners located off of Seymour Highway mention how dangerous this stretch of road is.  Cars speed up and down these lanes and with vehicles turning in and out of business driveways, business owners say this road is accident prone.

Wichita Falls firefighters responded to the accident and extracted Towels from his vehicle.  His body was taken to the County Medical Examiner for an autopsy.
