Killeen Motorcyclist Loses His Life in Tragic Motorcycle Accident

By King Law Firm on April 23, 2013 - Comments off

Courtesy of kcentv.com, a tragic motorcycle accident in Killeen has resulted in the death of a Fort Hood soldier.  According to a Killeen Police Department spokesman, the man was traveling north on Bridgewood Drive.  He lost control of his bike and ended up crashing into a pickup truck that was parked.  The accident occurred near Golden Gate Drive.

The Killeen Police Department spokesman told reporters that the motorcyclist failed to negotiate a curve properly and went down.  Speed is thought to have been involved in the accident although at this point the accident investigation is preliminary. The driver was pronounced dead at Scott & White Medical Center shortly before 8:00 a.m. on April 15.  In April of 2010, the motorcycle driver had entered the military as a combat engineer.  Since August of 2012, he had been assigned to the 36th Engineer Brigade, Headquarters and Headquarters Company at Fort Hood.

For one year, February, 2011, to February, 2012, the motorcyclist was deployed for Operation Enduring Freedom.

Among several awards earned, he had received a Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, a National Defense Service Medal, and the Army Commendation Medal.

In accidents such as this, vehicle defects and problems with the road may lead to a biker losing control of his or her vehicle. Often, this loss of control can lead to a serious or fatal crash that he or she cannot prevent.
