COLORADO SPRINGS- A late night training accident turned deadly, with one Fort Carson soldier dying and six others suffering injuries in a vehicle rollover accident on the Colorado base, the U.S. military said Saturday.
The accident — which is still under investigation — happened around 10 p.m. Friday (midnight ET), according to a military statement.
All of the injured, including one in critical condition, were medically evacuated. The military hasn’t identified them or the soldier killed, waiting on next-of-kin notification.
