The driver of a military truck has been charged after two Marines died when it rolled over on Wednesday afternoon near the coast of North Carolina, officials said. Louis Barrera, age 19, was charged with one count of exceeding a safe speed and two counts of misdemeanor death by motor vehicle. Berrera was allegedly making a right turn on a highway when he lost control of the vehicle, which tipped over and tossed its occupants. A vehicle following Berrera’s hit one of the ejected Marines. The truck held 19 people at the time of the crash, and 15 required medical attention in the wake of the accident, including two who were airlifted to a hospital in nearby Greenville. Camp Lejeune’s 2nd Marine Logistics Group tweeted that officers were conducting an investigation of the incident.
