KPD Investigates Fatal Crash on Veteran’s Memorial Blvd

The Killeen Police Department Traffic Unit investigates an early morning fatal crash on Veteran’s Memorial Blvd.

Officers responded to the area of Veteran’s Memorial Blvd and W.S. Young Dr. at 12:47am, on Saturday, June 27, 2015, after receiving 911 calls about a male who had been hit by a vehicle. Upon the officers arrival they located an injured male who had been involved in the crash.

Officers were told by witnesses that the 26 year old male was riding his bicycle southbound on W.S. Young Dr. and a black 2003 Infinity was traveling eastbound in the outside lane of Veteran’s Memorial Blvd. Witnesses said the male on the bicycle failed to stop at the red light and rode into the intersection in front of the oncoming Infinity, causing the vehicle to collide with the bicycle rider.   After first responder’s arrival, the male was airlifted to Baylor Scott & White Hospital with life threatening injuries.  Michael David Carrasco, a Fort Hood soldier, succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at 9:52am, by Justice of the Peace David Barfield.

There will be no charges filed on the driver of the Infinity.
