KPD Investigates Fatal Crash on Veterans Memorial Blvd.

Officers responded to the 2400 block of E. Veteran Memorial Blvd on Tuesday, January 12, 2016, at 2:09pm, after receiving 911 calls in reference to a person being hit by a vehicle while riding his bicycle.  Upon the officers arrival they located a gray 2015 Dodge Ram pickup and a 79 year old man who had been riding a bicycle.  The male was immediately transported by ambulance to the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center with life threatening injuries where he was stabilized and later transferred by air to Baylor Scott & White Hospital.  Ronald Boyce succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased by Justice of the Peace David Barfield at 4:52pm.

The KPD Traffic Unit began investigating this crash and it was determined that the male left the parking lot of the Centroplex Recycling Center and began riding his bicycle diagonally northwest across VMB and into the path of the oncoming Dodge pickup that was traveling westbound in the outside lane of traffic.  The driver of the Dodge pickup was not injured and there will be no charges filed in his crash.
