Fort Hood identifies soldier killed in Killeen crash

Fort Hood officials have identified the soldier who died in a Killeen motorcycle crash Monday.

Spc. Logan Ellis Rainwater, 24, died from injuries he suffered in the crash. Rainwater, whose home of record is listed as Albany, Ore., entered active-duty service in February 2013 as a motor transport operator.

According to KVUE’s sister station in Waco KCEN, Rainwater was traveling north on Clear Creek Road near Janelle Drive around 9:15 a.m. Monday when a SUV traveling southbound turned in front of him. Rainwater was ejected and his bike struck a car that was sitting at a stop sign. KCEN reported Rainwater died at Metroplex Hospital approximately 30 minutes after the crash, and that the 72-year-old driver of the SUV was cited for failure to yield right of way.

Fort Hood said Rainwater was assigned to the 154th Composite Truck Company, 553rd Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division there since November 2015.

Rainwater’s awards and decorations include an Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development Ribbon, Army Service Ribbon and Driver and Mechanic Badge with wheeled vehicle.
