Killeen Police investigate a fatal crash on Highway 190/Interstate Highway 14.

Killeen Police responded to IH-14, at 5:57 a.m., on Tuesday, May 16, 2017, after receiving a 911 call in reference to a crash involving a vehicle and a pedestrian.  Upon the officers’ arrival, they located a male lying on the side of the roadway.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the pedestrian was walking northbound across IH-14 and a maroon Dodge Pickup was traveling eastbound in the center lane.  The male driver told officers that he saw a dark silhouette in the roadway and was unable to take evasive action, colliding into the pedestrian.  The driver was the only occupant in the vehicle and reported no injuries.

Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke pronounced 56 year-old Wayne Clarke of Killeen, deceased at 6:37 a.m. and he ordered  an autopsy to be performed at the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas.
