An auto-pedestrian accident left traffic backed up along U.S. Highway 190 near the Trimmier Road exit in Killeen early Wednesday morning.

Police officers responded to the scene around 6:40 a.m. after a caller reported an accident. Killeen Police Department spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez said a man was reportedly hit by a Jeep while attempting to cross the highway after another car swerved to avoid him.

Rescue workers performed CPR on the victim at the scene.

Miramontez said officers had closed off the Willow Springs/Fort Hood Street exit due to the accident, and that traffic was at a standstill from there to the Trimmier Road exit.
