A man walking north across U.S. Highway 190/Interstate 14 was struck and killed by a pickup truck just before 6 a.m. Tuesday.
The driver of a maroon Dodge pickup was driving east on the highway when he suddenly saw a dark silhouette in front of him. The driver was unable to stop in time, and the man died after he was hit, according to Killeen police spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez.
The man had no identification on him at the time of the accident, according to Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke, who pronounced the man dead.
The accident happened just before the W.S. Young exit on U.S. 190/I-14. It’s the second time in a week that someone has been killed in an accident on the roadway.
A Killeen tow truck driver died in Harker Heights on Thursday morning after being struck by a minivan while attending to a vehicle.
