1711 E Central Texas Expy
Killeen, TX 76541
Killeen is a place of many possibilities. Killeen is home to one of the few planetariums in Texas, as well as a performing arts theater that produces plays and musicals year-round. Killeen has its very own unique appeal but it is perhaps best known for its northern neighbor that just so happens to be one of the largest military installations in the world: Fort Hood.
Drivers need to keep their heads on a swivel, pay very close attention and exercise caution when they are in Killeen. A driver is more likely to be involved in a deadly crash in Killeen than most other area cities, according to crash data obtained from the Texas Department of Transportation and compiled by the Killeen Daily Herald. The information shows that Killeen has a greater number of fatal vehicle crashes and crashes in general on its main roadways and intersections than other neighboring cities, even when taking into account the communities’ population differences. According to the crash data, the bulk of the collisions are happening on Stan Schlueter Loop and U.S. Highway 190 between Copperas Cove and Belton. Smaller nearby cities such as Harker Heights, Nolanville and Copperas Cove have less crashes per capita than Killeen, and the total number of crashes in cities surrounding Killeen have declined in the last three years. Killeen officials blame the higher crash numbers on a number of factors, including construction and speeding motorists.
