KPD Arrests Suspect Involved in Hit and Run Crash

On Wednesday, February 26, 2020, at approximately 10:53 p.m., Killeen Police were dispatched to the 1100 block of Old FM 440 Road in reference to a 911 call about a pedestrian hit and run crash.  Upon the officers’ arrival they located a male lying in the roadway.  He was immediately transported to Baylor Scott & White in critical condition.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the pedestrian walking in the roadway when a white two-tone Ford F250 or 350 pickup truck traveling northbound on Old FM 440 Road, struck the pedestrian and fled the scene.

Through the investigation, Officers with the Killeen Police Department, Traffic Unit, received information from a Crime Stoppers Tip that led to the suspect driver and vehicle.  On Wednesday, March 26, 2020, the Bell County District Attorney’s Office reviewed this case and returned a complaint charging Norlan Ricardo Perez-Corrales with Accident Involving Serious Bodily Injury – Fail to Stop and Render Aid.  A warrant was issued by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke and he set his bond at $200,000.  Perez-Corrales is currently incarcerated in the McClennan County Jail.

We’d like to thank the community for their assistance with this crash.
