Two soldiers killed and 21 injured in car crash


A vehicle collision that occurred 60 kilometers outside Ulaanbaatar last Friday left two soldiers dead and 21 injured, reported the General Staff of the Mongolian Armed Forces.
Six Zil-131 army trucks with around 20 soldiers each were returning from a field exercise when a vehicle driving into on-coming traffic hit the first truck’s rear tire. The truck flipped over, resulting in the death of two passengers, 24 and a 26-years-old, on impact.
Of the 21 injured soldiers that are currently hospitalized, one remains in critical condition, report doctors. He has undergone brain surgery and is under intensive care treatment at the Central Military Hospital in Bayanzurkh District. The soldiers were from Military Unit No.084.
The vehicle that hit the truck had five people in it, including two young children and a pregnant woman. None of them were harmed in the accident.
