A SEAL from the Naval Special Warfare Group Two at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story was killed Wednesday in a training accident at Army installation Ft. Knox, according to several press reports. Five other sailors were injured in the accident.

The sailors were part of a convoy riding in a Humvee when the accident occured, Navy officals told The Virginian Pilot.

“The U.S. Navy has used the 170-square-mile Fort Knox as a training ground since World War II. The Army post is about 50 miles southwest of Louisville and is home to about 14,000 military personnel, including active duty members and reserves,” reported The Associated Press.

The accident is under investigation and the more details could be released later Friday.
