Five persons were killed in a vehicle accident in Iraq after their vehicle ran into a canal.

TIKRIT, Iraq (AP) - A Bradley Fighting Vehicle rolled into a canal during a combat patrol north of Baghdad, killing five U.S. soldiers and wounding two others, the military said Tuesday.

The soldiers from the Army's 1st Infantry Division were pronounced dead on arrival at a military medical clinic.

One of the two wounded soldiers was in serious condition, the other was stable, a military statement said.

Even though I am opposed to the war, this is still a tragic accident.
They haven't said what caused the accident yet.
I guess the threat of mortars and machinegun fire from insurgents requires the soldiers to drive with a great amount of speed and they may be focusing more on what's happening on the sides of the roads rather than being able to focus all of their attention on the road itself.

There seems to be quite a few vehicular "accidents" in Iraq. I thought this war was over? Wasn't victory declared a year ago?
