March 27–Eleven members of the military were injured in an accident involving several Humvees Thursday afternoon in a Fort Bliss training area, a post spokesman said.
Some of the injured were flown and others taken by ambulance to William Beaumont Army Medical Center, Fort Bliss spokesman Lt. Col. Lee Peters said.
Peters said that none of the injuries were critical. The accident, which occurred in the northeast section of Fort Bliss, is under investigation.
The accident had “nothing to do with Iron Focus,” a large training exercise going on at the Army post, Peters said.
