A military vehicle rolled into a ditch on the Richardson Highway on Thursday afternoon, part of a convoy of military vehicles from Fort Wainwright.

According to John Pennell, the 11th Airborne Division media relations chief, the convoy was driving between 35 and 40 miles per hour in a section of the road with two lanes. As the two lanes merged, a civilian car sped up and merged in front of a fueler to pass the convoy.
