Person of interest cleared in Bell County deputy hit and run injury

Local News

Belton Police say a “person of interest” in a hit-and-run crash that resulted in injury to a Bell County Sheriff’s Department deputy at the Bell County Expo Center back on September 30 has spoken with investigators.

According to officers on the case, that person is no longer suspected in the incident. For that reason, we have removed her picture from our report.

The deputy was directing traffic on Loop 121 just outside the Bell County Expo Center about 10:40 p.m. when he was hit by a vehicle believed to be a white 2019-2020 Acura MDX.

The driver fled westward toward I-14 with damage to the driver`s side mirror.

Police are asking if you know who owns this vehicle of interest, please contact the Belton Police Department at 254-933-5840 or text your tips to 254-217-6764.
