EL PASO, Texas (AP) - A Fort Bliss spokesman says 11 airmen were injured in an accident involving several Humvees at the Army post.

Lt. Col. Lee Peters tells the El Paso Times (https://bit.ly/19oRwLj ) that all of the injured airmen were expected to be released from a hospital Thursday night.

Officials say six vehicles were in a convoy when the accident occurred in a training area more than 15 miles northeast of the main portion of Fort Bliss. The accident is under investigation.

Peters says the accident wasn’t linked to a large training exercise going on at Fort Bliss.
