Killeen Police Investigate Rollover Crash
The Killeen Police Department Traffic Section is investigating a one car rollover crash on East Central Texas Expressway just before 8:00am this morning.
Officers responded to a report of a crash at 7:46am in the 5200 block of E. Central Texas Expressway, involving a Blue Dodge Durango that had turned over and pinned the driver inside. Upon their arrival, the officers located the vehicle upside down on Central Texas Expressway in the construction area near the bridge that was under construction.
The preliminary investigation revealed the driver was traveling east in the outside lane of Central Texas Expressway when the vehicle hit a construction barrel then continued east hitting a concrete barrier. The vehicle then crossed two lanes of traffic to the north leaving the roadway onto the dirt area and hitting the concrete bridge wall causing the vehicle to overturn pinning the driver inside.
The Killeen Fire Department responded and was able to free the driver from the vehicle. The 38 year old driver was airlifted to the Baylor Scott & White Hospital in critical condition. There were no other vehicles involved in this crash and the driver was the only occupant of the Dodge Durango.
Alcohol is believed to be contributing factor in this crash.
