US Soldier Dies in Kuwait Road Accident

by The Associated Press

KUWAIT CITY (AP) — One American soldier was killed and two were injured in a road accident on a highway in Kuwait on Monday, the U.S. military here said.

The cause of the "single vehicle" accident is under investigation, the military said in a brief statement without providing details.

The name of the 1st Sustainment Command (Theater) soldier who died of his injuries was withheld pending notification of relatives. The injured were evacuated to a Kuwaiti hospital and were in "stable condition," the military statement said.

This small, oil-rich state has been a major ally of Washington since the 1991 Gulf War that liberated it from a seven-month Iraqi occupation under Saddam Hussein. U.S. troops and equipment are pre-positioned in the country, and it was the launchpad for the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq that toppled Saddam.
