ACCIDENT

The Killeen Police Department is investigating a fatal crash that left a female pedestrian dead Thursday night, according to a press release Friday.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a white Chevy Silverado was traveling westbound in the outside lane on East Rancier Avenue when it collided with 30-year-old Alyssa Danielle Davis, who was walking westbound on East Rancier Avenue in the roadway, said Ofelia Miramontez, public affairs officer for the KPD. Davis was taken to the Carl R. Darnall Medical Center in critical condition.

Officers were dispatched to the 3500 block of East Rancier Avenue, near Long Branch Park, in reference to a crash involving a pickup truck and a pedestrian at around 10 p.m. Thursday. Upon the officers’ arrival, they found a woman lying in the roadway. Officers immediately started to perform life saving measures until paramedics arrived, Miramontez said.

Davis succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased by Justice of the Peace Gregory Johnson at 11:17 p.m. Thursday. He ordered an autopsy to be performed at the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas.

Davis’ death comes as the third in a string of Killeen pedestrian fatalities this month that include 37-year-old Yolanda Butler, who died Aug. 19 in the 4200 block of East Veterans Memorial Boulevard, and Peter Douglas Robertson, who died after attempting to cross Interstate 14 on Aug. 7.
