Motorcycle Accident Involving Two Fort Hood Soldiers Leaves One Dead

By King Law Firm on May 13, 2013

A Fort Hood soldier died in a motorcycle accident on May 4.  As reported by The Killeen Daily Herald, the two-motorcycle crash left one Fort Hood soldier dead.  The accident occurred near the small town of Holland in eastern Bell County.  A fellow soldier on a second motorcycle involved in the collision remained in the hospital at the time of the report.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the crash occurred at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon when one man, age 20 and a resident of Killeen, on one motorcycle and a woman, age 24 and also a Killeen resident, on another bike collided with one another.

DPS Trooper Harpin Meyers told reporters both soldiers were riding their separate 2001 Suzuki motorcycles on Saturday afternoon when they were traveling eastbound, hit a curb, drifted into the westbound lane, and collided with one another.  They were traveling on Farm-to-Market Road 2268 in the west city limits of Holland at the time of the collision.

The male motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.  The woman was taken to Scott and White Hospital in Temple where she remained in stable condition with broken bones.

Helmets were being worn by both motorcyclists at the time of the crash.
