Fatal crash

BELTON — Belton Police were at the scene Wednesday morning of a fatal car accident that occurred about 7:30 a.m. in the 2400 block of East Sixth Avenue, according to Paul Romer, city of Belton spokesman.

Jeremy Puryear, 41, of Killeen, died in the crash.

The victim’s age was earlier given as 30, which was incorrect, Romer said. His information was based off call notes that were inaccurate.

The fatality occurred near the Temple-Belton Wastewater Treatment Plant.

A black Ford Mustang left the road and crashed into a chain link fence that enclosed a storage area located at the west side at the plant, Romer said. Just past the storage area was another fence that surrounded a construction area.

Puryear wore a seatbelt, Bell County Justice of the Peace Ted Duffield said.

Some people heard the crash, saw the car and went to assist, Duffield said.

Duffield pronounced Puryear dead at 8:14 a.m. The body was sent to the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas for an autopsy.
