Cause of Death: Military Automobile Accident – Drill Instructor collision while marching caused by drill sergeant

“In October 2017, Pvts. Ashcraft and Shrader were marching along a road with other recruits, preparing for a fitness test. Behind them, a drill sergeant was driving a large pickup truck that hauled drinking water.

The drill sergeant had worked a late shift the night before and had gotten less sleep than most there. He nodded off, and his foot hit the gas pedal. The 12,000-pound truck and trailer plowed through the group, pinning Ashcraft and Shrader under its tires and injuring seven others.

A month after leaving their families for careers in the military, Ashcraft and Shrader were dead.” – Article 1
