A single-vehicle wreck resulted in the death of Paul J. Mansmann, 18, of Boyd, Wednesday afternoon, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The wreck occurred on Church Road, near Twin Creek Road, at about 5:05 p.m. Wednesday, according to DPS Sgt. Richard Hunter.

“Preliminary investigation indicates a 2013 Toyota Corolla was traveling north on Church Road and, for an as yet undetermined reason, left the right side of the roadway and struck a pipe guardrail,” Hunter said. “The Toyota went through the guardrail and down into a creek bed. The vehicle then rolled onto its drivers side and came to rest. [Mansmann] was transported to an area hospital in Azle where he was pronounced deceased.”
