3 US Soldiers Killed in Vehicle Accidents in Iraq, Kuwait

BAGHDAD (AP) -- The U.S. military says two of its soldiers in Iraq died when their vehicle rolled onto its side north of Baghdad.

A third American soldier died in a road accident in neighboring Kuwait.

The two soldiers died Wednesday in Iraq's Salahuddin province. The military said in a statement released Thursday that another soldier and an interpreter also were injured.

The military says the highway accident in Kuwait involved a single vehicle and that another soldier was injured.

The cause of both crashes were under investigation.

Kuwait is a major logistics base for American and other coalition troops serving in neighboring Iraq.
