Injured soldiers to be re-assessed today

Ten soldiers who were injured in a truck crash last night will be re-assessed at the CFB Shilo military hospital. Nine have previously been treated and released from Brandon hospital.

The crash happened Wednesday night on a gravel road in the Shilo training area, when two military trucks collided with each other. Although it's still being investigated by military police, it's believed that icy road conditions may have been a contributing factor. All the injured soldiers were members of the 2nd Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, which is based at CFB Shilo.

Details of the soldiers' injuries weren't immediately available, but a base spokesperson said that they varied in nature and severity, and added that some had been released into the care of family or friends.

"All of these soldiers will be re-assessed this morning at the CFB Shilo military hospital. The health of our soldiers is vitally important. We wish them all a full and speedy recovery,"  said Lt-Col. Bob Ritchie, commanding officer of 2PPCLI.
