Killeen Police investigate a fatal crash on Clear Creek Road.
Officers responded to the intersection of Clear Creek Road and Janelle Drive on Monday, August 1, 2016, at 9:15 am, after receiving 911 calls in reference to a crash involving a red Harley Davidson motorcycle and a silver Toyota Highlander SUV. Upon the officer’s arrival, they located the driver of the motorcycle lying on the side of the roadway; Killeen EMS immediately transported him to Metroplex Hospital in critical condition. Unfortunately the driver, 24 year old Logan Ellis Rainwater, succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at 9:42 am, by medical personnel. The 72 year old driver of the SUV was also transported to Metroplex Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of the Toyota Highlander was traveling southbound on Clear Creek Road in the middle left turn lane and the driver of the Harley Davidson was traveling northbound in the outside lane. The driver of the SUV attempted to turn eastbound onto Janelle Drive and failed to yield right of way, causing the motorcycle to collide into the SUV. The driver of the motorcycle was ejected and the motorcycle subsequently struck a white Nissan 370Z that was at the stop sign.
This crash continues to be investigated by the Killeen Police Department Traffic Unit.
