CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. -- Six Marines were listed in critical condition Friday, a day after the 7-ton truck carrying them rolled over during routine training at Camp Pendleton, killing one Marine and injuring 18.
The Marines were being treated at five area hospitals in San Diego County. Eight others were in stable condition and four were treated and discharged from medical facilities.
The Marine who was killed was from the 1st Marine Division, and that person's name will not be released until 24 hours after relatives are notified, officials said.
"The command's priorities are to take care of the Marines, Sailors and families of the unit," 1st Lt. Colleen McFadden said in a statement. "We want to ensure the Marines and their family members are being provided for during this difficult time."
Camp Pendleton, a vast seaside base north of San Diego, is the major West Coast outpost for the U.S. Marine Corps.
In November 2013, four Marines were killed there while clearing explosives in a Camp Pendleton training area. null
