Friday morning, a four-vehicle crash on U.S. 190 near Fort Hood Street left one car upside down and another leaning over a construction barrier.

Killeen Police Department spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez said the accident occurred when a Cadillac SUV traveling northbound on Old Farm-to-Market 440 failed to stop at a stop sign. The Cadillac went airborne across U.S. 190 and hit a Mazda, causing the vehicle to spin and hit a concrete barrier. The Mazda landed facing westbound and rolled into a ditch.

The driver of a Ford Ranger traveling eastbound on U.S. 190 witnessed the crash and hit a concrete barrier while trying to avoid hitting another vehicle.

A mother and child traveling in the Mazda were transported to Seton Medical Center Harker Heights with nonlife-threatening injuries. Two passengers in the Cadillac were transported to Metroplex Hospital in Killeen, also with nonlife-threatening injuries, Miramontez said.
