KILLEEN, TX — A 36-year-old woman is dead after a motorcycle crash on S. Fort Hood Street Saturday.

Marla Harris, the operator of the motorcycle, has been identified by police as the deceased.

Killeen Police were dispatched around 9:58 PM to the 1600 block of S. Fort Hood Street in reference to a 911 call about a crash involving a motorcycle and a vehicle.

Officers located an unconscious female lying on the roadway when they arrived.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a white Harley Davidson was traveling southbound on SH 195 at an "unsafe speed" when the driver of a black Nissan Versa failed to yield right-of-way stop sign and entered the intersection in front of the motorcycle, according to police.

The motorcycle struck the left front quarter panel of the Nissan, causing the operator to be ejected.

The operator was not wearing a helmet, according to police.

The operator of the motorcycle, Marla Harris, was pronounced deceased by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke at 11:15 p.m.

This investigation continues to be investigated, Killeen Police said.
