KPD Seeks Another Hit & Run Driver

This time the errant driver struck a man in a wheel chair.
Killeen police asked for the public’s help Tuesday after a hit-and-run early Sunday morning in which an SUV struck a Killeen man in a wheelchair who was crossing a street.

It happened just after 1:30 a.m. Sunday in the 400 block of West Mary Jane Drive, police said.

The 34-year-old victim, whose name was not released, was crossing the roadway in his wheelchair when an eastbound red or burgundy Chevrolet Trailblazer struck him.

The driver did not stop, witnesses said.

The SUV had front-end damage including damage to at least one headlight, police said.

The injured man was flown to Scott & White Hospital in Temple where he’s in critical condition.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to call Killeen police at (254) 501-8830, Killeen Crime Stoppers at (254) 526-8477 or to contact Crime Stoppers online. Source:

These types of incidents seem to be more common late at night. Might be a good reason not to be a pedestrian or cyclist during these hours.
