A training accident at Camp Pendleton, California, involving an Amphibious Combat Vehicle resulted in one Marine dead and fourteen injured.

The incident occurred during a ground movement training exercise on steep terrain.

The accident raises concerns about the safety of such vehicles, especially given previous incidents and a congressional report highlighting the high number of military fatalities due to accidents. (Trending: Dr. Fauci Says the Unthinkable About Going To Church)

“Range safety at places like Pendleton, where the terrain is changeable and dangerous, has not been sufficient to keep people safe,” the report noted.

“The risk is heightened by insufficient training of drivers/operators, particularly on off-road driving, resulting in fatal accidents, which the military cavalierly labels ‘mishaps.'”

“Conor is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. At that resting place of heroes, we do not want to have to visit the graves of any more young men and women who died in training. It is time for change,” the report added.
