FORT HUACHUCA, Ariz. (AP) — A soldier has been killed and two others hurt in a crash near the entrance to Fort Huachuca's airfield.

Fort Huachuca spokeswoman Tanja Linton says all three soldiers were assigned to the Army base's 40th Expeditionary Signal Battalion.

The multi-vehicle accident happened Thursday morning on Highway 90, which skirts the southern Arizona base. Traffic is being re-routed at the crash site near the airfield, which doubles as the Sierra Vista's civilian airport.

The names of those killed and injured will be withheld until 24 hours after their families are notified under military policy.
