Killeen Police Investigates a Fatal Crash on Interstate 14

On Saturday, December 21, 2019, Killeen Police responded to IH-14, at approximately 3:37 a.m., after receiving a 911 call in reference to a crash involving a motorcycle and a pedestrian.  Upon the officers’ arrival, they located two black males lying in the roadway on the westbound side of IH-14 near the Fort Hood Street exit ramp.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the pedestrian was walking on IH-14 in the outside lane and a 2009 Harley Davidson Street Glide was traveling westbound in the outside lane.  The weather conditions at the time of the crash were very foggy and the roadway was wet.  The operator of the motorcycle was unable to take evasive action and struck the pedestrian.  The motorcycle operator was transported to the Carl R. Darnall Medical Center where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Justice of the Peace Daryl Peters pronounced the pedestrian, 43 year-old Reggie Stamps deceased at approximately 4:41 a.m. at the scene.  JP Peters pronounced the operator of the motorcycle, 53 year-old Kerwin Royce Kilgore deceased at approximately 5:08 a.m. at the medical center.  JP Peters ordered autopsies to be performed at the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas on Stamps and Kilgore.

The Killeen Police Department Traffic Unit continues to investigate this fatality and information will be released as it becomes available.
