May 29, 2013

A motorcycle accident with fatalities at I-10 East and exit 8 is currently under investigation by the El Paso Police Department.  Two people were killed, a man and a woman.  Both were wearing helmets. Major Joe Buccino of Fort Bliss tells KRWG News: "We can confirm that one of the fatalities is a Fort Bliss Soldier.  Our Military Police have a strong relationship with the El Paso Police Department and our traffic accident investigation team is assisting in the investigation.  If the  investigation determines that this was a preventable Soldier death, we will reset the signs at the installation entry and exit gates.  At this time, our thoughts and prayers are with the Families involved.
