Kevin Gordon II Killed in Hit-and-Run on S Fort Hood Street in Killeen, TX

UPDATE (November 16, 2022): Sources have identified the victim of this accident as Kevin Gordon II.

Killeen, TX — October 2, 2022, a pedestrian was struck by two vehicles and died in a hit-and-run on South Fort Hood Street in Killeen.

Authorities say the incident happened around 9:00 p.m. on the 3100 block of South Fort Hood Street. Preliminary investigation suggests the victim was crossing the street when a northbound vehicle, believed to be a black or gray SUV without its lights on, struck them and then left the scene without stopping. A Nissan Murano then hit the pedestrian a second time in the roadway; that driver remained at the scene.

The investigation continues as police look for more information about the hit-and-run vehicle and its driver.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Pedestrian Hit-and-Run on Fort Hood St in Killeen

It's tragic anytime someone dies in an accident, but add to that incredible frustration when the person who hurt them flees the scene. There's no good excuse for that, and obviously it's important to locate the runaway driver and ensure they face consequences for their choices.

More than that, a full investigation will also try to find out why they left. If they just panicked that might be one thing, but it'd be another entirely if they tried to hide something else--drugs, active warrants, or drunk driving, just to name a few possibilities.

Before the driver's motives can be learned, though, first they must be found. Police will hopefully achieve that by releasing any details and developments to the public as quickly as possible. With the community's help someone (a concerned family member or friend, a coworker, or even a stranger) may recognize the vehicle's description and contact police.

That can take some time, but it's important not to give up. We even learned of a hit-and-run suspect being arrested a full year after her accident because someone overheard her bragging about getting away with it at a bar three counties way. As long as investigators and the public stay vigilant, I'm hopeful justice will be done.
