Killeen, TX (November 15, 2021) – One man has lost his life following a motor vehicle accident in the Killeen area early Sunday morning, November 14. At around 4 a.m., authorities received the request for assistance on-site at an auto accident on Texas State Highway 195.
Reports from authorities show that a gray 2005 Infiniti G35 was stopped on the outer lanes of northbound Interstate 195. As the driver, 24-year-old Brandon William Cepeda exited his vehicle and stood near it in the roadway, a gray 2011 Hyundai Sonata traveling north on the roadway struck the Infiniti. The Hyundai then proceeded forward and struck Cepeda.
The impact of the crash caused the Hyundai to cross over the center lanes of the roadway and come to rest facing northbound while in the southbound lanes of the highway.
Cepeda sustained fatal injuries in the accident and was declared deceased at the scene.
The driver of the Hyundai sustained injuries and was transported to Baylor Scott and White Hospital in Temple, Texas for care. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victim injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Brandon Cepeda. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian accidents in the state of Texas claim the lives of around two victims every day. These accidents are often devastating due to the fact that pedestrians are without adequate protection during accidents. Although most people are careful while traveling near roadways, we see many people harmed in accidents as a result of driver negligence. Far too many people are hurt by speeding drivers, drivers who are distracted, and those who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
