CLAY COUNTY, Texas (KAUZ) - A Wichita Falls man was killed Sunday in a crash on Highway 287 between Bellevue and Henrietta.

Mack Henry Lafaele, 34, of Wichita Falls was killed after being ejected from the vehicle. All of the other occupants were taken to United Regional; two minors were treated and released, one minor is in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries, and the other adult has a minor injury.
