CAMP PENDLETON (CNS) - Two sailors were killed and a third injured Monday when a seven-ton military water-hauling truck crashed and overturned during a training operation at Camp Pendleton.

The accident, which involved members of Amphibious Construction Battalion I, occurred about 8 a.m. as the crew of the vehicle was taking part in a joint Navy and Marine Corps exercise, said Cmdr. Greg Hicks, spokesman for the U.S. Third Fleet in San Diego.

The sailor who suffered non-fatal injuries was airlifted to a hospital, where he was listed in stable condition, Hicks said.

The names of the victims were withheld pending notification of their families.
