KILLEEN, TX — The Killeen Police Department says they responded to a crash on State Hwy 195 that ended in a driver being airlifted.

A vehicle that was traveling behind the motorcycle took evasive action from the outside lane to the inside, the driver then hit the motorcycle that was in the roadway.
