Lubbock Soldier Killed at Fort Hood

Killeen Police have released the identity of a 20 year-old Fort Hood soldier who died in a one-vehicle crash along the Harker Heights-Killeen city line Tuesday morning.

Angelo Shane Allen of C Company, 15th Brigade Support Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division was traveling on South Roy Reynolds Drive in a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon when the vehicle continued across the road into a culvert located on the south side of the Veterans Memorial Boulevard, according to a Killeen Police Department news release.

His vehicle then went flying into the air, striking a pipe in the culvert, causing his vehicle to flip, land upside-down and trap him inside.

Harker Heights responded to the accident at 8:14 a.m., but the accident was believed to have happened earlier.

Initially, KPD could not determine if a driver was in the Hyundai because it was pressed against the ground, KPD spokeswoman Carroll Smith said.

Once a tow truck flipped the Hyundai over, Allen was found, Smith said.

Allen, of Lubbock, was pronounced dead at 9:15 a.m. by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke.

Allen was an Estacado High School honor student, and a member of the ROTC.  

"He had really high goals, very much into technology. That was his life. Computers, games, that was his goal to create a game. And that's why he wanted his G.I. Bill to further his education," said Allen's mother Sophia Contri.

No funeral arrangements have been made yet. But we'll bring you that information when it becomes available.
