FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Officials at Fort Bragg have identified the airman who died after he was run over by a government vehicle during an Air Force training exercise.

A news release from the post says 30-year-old Senior Airman Timothy J. Wright of Pensacola, Florida, was hit by the vehicle on Wednesday about 10:45 a.m.

The statement from the post says several unit members who witnessed the accident attempted life-saving measures until emergency personnel arrived. Wright was taken to Womack Army Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 11 a.m.

The incident is under investigation.

Wright was assigned to Pope's 43rd Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron as an aeromedical evacuation technician. He arrived at Pope last May. Prior to that, Wright was an aerospace medical service technician at Travis Air Force Base, California.
