The soldier killed in a crash between a Humvee and a tractor-trailer on Fort Bragg on Thursday was a 24-year-old special operations combat medic, according to Army officials.
Maj. Beth Riordan, a spokeswoman for 1st Special Forces Command, declined to release the soldier’s name. The soldier, from Columbus, Georgia, was assigned to the 528th Sustainment Brigade, 1st Special Forces Command, she said.
Two other soldiers in the Humvee, also assigned to the 528th Sustainment Brigade, were injured in the crash. The driver of the tractor-trailer, James Wilhelm, of Fayetteville, was not injured.
The Humvee was traveling west on Plank Road when it collided with the tractor-trailer that was traveling east around 4:22 p.m. The soldiers were traveling to a driving training event, according to Riordan.
