KITTITAS, Wash. — Authorities say four people were hospitalized after an armored vehicle went over a 25-foot cliff during a military exercise in central Washington state.
The green and tan 2018 military Stryker crashed about 4:30 a.m. Saturday on an unnamed dirt road near Kittitas.
The driver, 22-year-old Chance Kennen of Lecompte, Louisiana, told Washington state troopers he didn't see the cliff's edge.
The vehicle's front-end landed facing the ground and the wheels against the cliff.
The Strykers crashed during a road march in Lithuania on Thursday morning.
Kennen was in "stable" condition at Seattle's Harborview Medical Center.
The passengers went to Virginia Mason Memorial Hospital, where 35-year-old Aaron Arnold from Medway, Ohio, was listed in fair condition.
And 27-year-old Ricardo Ponce from Mission Hills, California, and 20-year-old Kristian Allen from Jensen, Utah, were treated and released.
None were wearing seatbelts.
No citations were issued.
