A soldier assigned to a special operations unit was killed and two other were injured in a wreck at Fort Brag Thursday evening.
The three soldiers collided with a car-carrier truck while driving in a Humvee on Plank Road during the evening rush. The Army confirmed the soldiers are assigned to the USASOC (Special Operations Command) but is withholding their names and units for now.
“One soldier in the Humvee was dead at the scene, another airlifted to Womack Army Medical,” ABC reported. “The third soldier was treated at the scene”
The car-carrier truck driver was not injured during the wreck.
“It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce the death of one Soldier and three others injured in this accident. Again, we ask that you respect the families and friends by not post any photos or information you may have or heard about the accident,” Fort Bragg Public Affairs said in a statement on social media. “If you are thinking of posting what you heard about this accident, please consider the accuracy of your information and the families and friends of those involved in it. Discretion at times is the better part of valor.”
According to Fort Bragg spokesman Tom McCollum, safety investigators have not said where the soldiers were headed or what caused the accident.
