The soldier’s identity will not be released until the soldier’s next of kin is notified, officials said, and the incident is under investigation.

Last month, seven U.S. soldiers were injured after a group of armored military vehicles piled up on a highway in Germany. An Army spokesperson confirmed one soldier was airlifted to a hospital at the time, while six others were taken to hospitals in ambulances.

U.S. officials said the crash happened in a convoy of armored vehicles that was en route to Grafenwoehr Training Area, part of the U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria. 

A Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle struck a Stryker, neither of which had any munitions on board, officials said. Police from the town of Amberg initially described the incident as “a rear-end collision involving four armored vehicles,” The Associated Press reported.

German police said “traffic-related braking” was a probable reason for the crash, though it remains under investigation, Military Times reported.
