KILLEEN, TX (09/07/2015) — 28-year-old Thomas Reyes, a Fort Hood solider, was killed in a car-vs-motorcycle wreck early Monday morning.
According to police spokeswoman Carroll Smith, 28-year-old Thomas James Reyes was killed in a motorcycle accident on Monday morning in Killeen, Texas at the intersection of MLK Boulevard and Monte Carlo Lane.
Smith states that at around 1:00 a.m., Reyes was traveling southbound on MLK Boulevard when a 2011 Ford Mustang rear-ended his motorcycle. The impact sent both the Mustang and motorcycle into a ditch.
