28-year-old Beverly Leeann Baker of Round Rock was killed Sunday in a wreck just before 3 a.m. in the 11000 block of South Texas 195 in Killeen.

Officers responded to a report of a Jeep traveling north in the southbound lane of Texas 195  As they were en route, callers reported a crash at 2:54 a.m.

A preliminary investigation revealed that a 26-year-old Killeen man was driving a 2003 Jeep Wrangler on the wrong side of the road, police said.  The Jeep’s driver swerved to avoid a vehicle that was traveling south, spun and struck the front of a 1993 Buick Regal that was behind the other vehicle.  The Jeep then rolled and burst into flames.

The Buick was occupied by a 38-year-old man from Austin and two women.  The man and a 30-year-old woman from Georgetown who was seated in the rear of the Buick were taken to Scott & White Memorial Hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries, police said.  Baker was pronounced dead at 3:30 a.m.

The driver of the Jeep was severely burned and airlifted to Scott & White; he will be transferred to the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, police said.
