One soldier assigned to a Fort Bragg Special Operations unit was killed and two more were injured in a vehicle collision on Thursday afternoon when the soldiers’ Humvee collided with a car-carrier truck on Plank Road near the base.

“One soldier in the Humvee was dead at the scene, another airlifted to Womack Army Medical,” one local news outlet reported.  “The third soldier was treated at the scene”

Fort Bragg spokesman, Tom McCollum, said the incident took place at approximately 4:22PM.  The three soldiers departed the base in a Humvee belonging to the U.S. Army Special Operations Command and headed west on Plank Road where it seems to have struck the eastbound civilian car carrier head on near the intersection of Plank Road and Vass Road, east of Mott Lake.

Initial reports indicate that the civilian driver of the car-carrier truck was uninjured in the incident.
