One soldier killed, three injured in military vehicle accident

A Fort Bragg soldier was killed and four were injured during an accident involving a military vehicle on Butner Road at approximately 12:50 p.m., Oct. 4.

“This was a tough day here on Fort Bragg,” said Col. Joe Buccino, Fort Bragg spokesman. “It was a tough day for all of us. Our immediate thoughts right now are on the Family, the men and women of the 16th Military Police Brigade, and the injured Soldiers. Anytime you lose a Soldier on-post in a situation outside of combat, it hurts. It’s a tragic loss. There will be a time for investigating the cause and nature of this accident, but right now we’re focusing our attention on the troops and Families.”

The names are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

The incident is currently under investigation.
