Fort Hood Officials Report Soldier Has Died in Killeen Motorcycle Accident

By King Law Firm on May 20, 2013

A Fort Hood soldier died from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident in Killeen, Texas, on May 12.  Courtesy of the Fort Hood Public Affairs Office, the 1st Lieutenant was pronounced dead at 1:21 a.m. at Carl R. Darnall Medical Center.  The deceased Army soldier had been assigned to the 1st Battalion, 5th Calvary Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division, and his home of record is Waldorf, Maryland.

According to a preliminary investigation, the Fort Hood soldier was riding a Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle in Killeen on Robinett Road.  Officers say the soldier’s motorcycle struck a curb, crashing into a drainage ditch.  The bike had just passed through an intersection at Robinett and Edgefield.  A witness to the motorcycle accident called 911 just prior to 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning to report the accident.  Officers say the motorcyclist was wearing his helmet at the time of the crash.

The crash victim had deployed in support of Operation New Dawn from May through November of 2011.  He joined the military in August 2010 and had been assigned to his unit since April 2011.  His awards include the following:

  • Army Commendation Medal
  • Iraqi Campaign Medal with Campaign Star
  • National Defense Service Medal
  • Global War on Terrorism Service Medal
  • Parachutist Badge and Combat Infantry Badge
  • Global War on Expeditionary Medal Army Service Ribbon
