    A bus carrying Marines Reservists from Alabama and Florida crashed Sunday morning on the Fort Rucker military reservation. The Fort Rucker public affairs office said in a statement, 12 Marines remain hospitalized, including four with life threatening injuries. The Army said the injured Marines were transported to hospitals in Dothan, Enterprise and Elba. 11 passengers were treated and released.

    The loss of life is sad enough during war time, but it is even sadder when it comes during training in my opinion. My wife was at the Rucker base gym when they shut it down to make it a CP for the unit.

    1 has died, and 3 are in critical condition.

    One of the Marines involved in a bus crash at Fort Rucker on Sunday has died from his injuries. 16 Marines have been released from Dothan area hospitals. Four more Marines are expected to be released soon, while three remained in critical condition as of 11:20 a.m.

    All of the Marines were part of E Company, Anti-Terrorism Battalion, 4gh Marine Division, Marine Corps Reserve Center.

    The driver of the charter bus involved in the accident that killed the Marine and injured 22 other Marines has been charged with reckless driving, according to the Fort Rucker Public Affairs Office.
