Military officials confirmed a paramedic was killed Thursday morning heading to an injury call. A spokesman at Fort Bragg said an ambulance was on the way to parachute training jump at Camp McCall in Hoke County when the driver lost control, over corrected, spun around and landed in trees along Plank Road near Turkey Road.

The driver of the ambulance was injured. A second medic in the vehicle was killed.

The investigation into what happened continues, and the name of the dead paramedic has not been released.

The military said the paramedics were civilians - not members of the military. The driver was treated and released from Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.
