Korean Woman killed by US Military Vehicle

A South Korean woman was killed Friday after being struck by a US military truck in Dongducheon, some 40 kilometers north to Seoul, reported South Korean Yonhap News Agency.

The woman, whose surname is Kim, was pulling her cart on a street in Dongducheon when a 2.5-ton US military vehicle hit her. The driver of truck is a US soldier whose first name is Brian, said the report.

The 51-year-old yogurt delivery worker was dead on the spot.

Sad situation. They are trying to determine if he was on duty at the time. If so, the US heads the investigation, if not, South Korea does.

Let's hope it was just a horrible accident. All condolences to the family.

UPDATE: Kushibo adds much more to this.
