KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) A man who, according to court documents, led police on a 75-mile-per hour chase on Aug. 4 on a Killeen city street with a 30-mile-per-hour speed limit during which the stolen SUV he was driving struck a man on an ATV was indicted on two counts Wednesday.

Billie Dovonte Scott, 21, of Killeen, who was arrested after the stolen SUV he was driving crashed on Trimmier Road at Duvall Drive, was named in indictments Wednesday charging evading arrest with a vehicle and failure to stop and render aid.

He remains in the Bell County Jail in lieu of bonds totaling $152,000.

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 an arrest affidavit identified 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.
