HONOLULU (AP) - A Hawaii National Guard solider from Kailua has been killed in a plane crash in Afghanistan.

Hawaii National Guard officials say 25-year-old Sgt. Drew Scobie and two others were killed in Friday’s crash of a MC-12 reconnaissance aircraft.

Hawaii News Now reports the military says there is no indication that the plane crashed as a result of enemy action. The Department of Defense has not yet released the names of those killed and details about the crash.

Scobie leaves behind a son and a pregnant wife.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports his family traveled to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to greet Scobie’s casket and then returned to Hawaii for a gathering Tuesday at Makapuu Beach, one of his favorite spots.
