RAEFORD, N.C. (WTVD) -- A Fort Bragg soldier was killed and two others were injured in a crash while en route to a training range Thursday morning.

"The accidental death of this soldier is tragic; my thoughts and prayers are with the family," Fort Bragg Garrison commander Col. Scott Pence wrote in a statement.

The names of the victims have not been released.
