Six U.S. Marines were in critical condition on Friday following a roll-over crash the day before of a seven-ton-truck at Camp Pendleton in Southern California that killed one Marine and injured 18, a military spokesman said.

All of the marines in the crash, which occurred during a return from routine training, are from the 1st Marine Division, the largest division stationed on the base, Staff Sergeant Bobbie Curtis.

“After this tragic training accident, our first concern is for the welfare of our deceased Marine, the injured and their families,” the division’s commanding general, Major General Daniel O’Donohue, said in a statement.

The crash occurred on Basilone Road, a key route through the sprawling base, at around 2 p.m. local time on Thursday as the marines were returning from routine training, Curtis said.

The road was closed for more than seven hours while the crash was investigated.

The Marine Corps has not released the name of the deceased Marine.

Camp Pendleton, the Marines’ largest West Coast expeditionary training facility, lies nearly 40 miles (64 km) north of San Diego and is home to a daytime population of some 70,000 military personnel, family members and other civilians.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.
