Three unidentified people were injured in a major vehicle accident near the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport on Tuesday, February 22.
The two-vehicle crash occurred on a Tuesday morning at the 8100 block of SH-201 for a two-vehicle accident.
Officers discovered a Ford Escape and a Ford F-250 with damage when they arrived.
According to preliminary investigation, a white Ford F-250 pulling an empty horse trailer was traveling southbound in the outside lane of State Highway 201, approaching the intersection of Chet Edwards Loop.
A black Ford Escape was traveling eastbound on Chet Edwards Loop after exiting the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport when the driver failed to yield right of way and entered the southbound lanes of SH-201, where it was struck by the Ford truck.
The driver of the Ford Escape was airlifted to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center, while the two passengers – a woman and a child – were taken to the hospital by ambulance with minor injuries.
The Ford F-250’s driver was not transported. Right of way and child safety seat violations resulted in citations.
