Driver tops 75 on local street during high-speed chase, hits man on ATV
A man who led police on a high-speed chase on Aug. 4 during which the stolen SUV he was driving struck a man on an ATV reached speeds of 75 miles per hour on a Killeen city street with a 30-mile-per-hour speed limit, court documents released Tuesday say.
Billie Dovonte Scott was arrested after the stolen SUV he was driving crashed on Trimmier Road at Duvall Drive.
He remains in the Bell County Jail in lieu of bonds totaling $70,000 charged with possession of a controlled substance, unauthorized use of a vehicle, accident involving serious bodily injury and evading arrest with a vehicle.
The pursuit started after a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper attempted to stop the stolen 2017 Nissan Rogue at around 5:35 p.m. Aug. 4 on State Highway 195 near U.S. Highway 190/Interstate 14.
The driver, whom the affidavit released Tuesday identifies as Scott, refused to stop.
As an officer gave chase, Scott “began traveling at a high rate of speed down Hallmark Street,” reaching speeds of 70 miles per hour in a 30-mile-per-hour zone the affidavit says.
Scott made a right turn onto Trimmier Road, attempted to pass a vehicle on the left, veered into a turn lane and struck the man riding on the ATV, who suffered scrapes to his arms, leg and top of his head, the affidavit says.
The vehicle then struck a parked van in the parking lot of a daycare, the affidavit says.
Scott and two passengers got out and ran, the affidavit says.
Officers caught Scott and one of the passengers.
The second passenger escaped.
