FILE - In this May 27, 2015 file photo, a Stryker armored vehicle leads a group of vehicles south on I-25 south in Colorado Springs, Colo. Investigators say an Army vehicle took the wrong road in the dark and was trying to make a U-turn when it tumbled 250 feet off a cliff at a Colorado training range in Feb. 2015, killing one soldier and injuring five. Investigators also said medical personnel had recommended that the soldier who died shouldn’t go on the exercise because of an unspecified condition. But it wasn’t clear if his condition was a factor in the 2015 crash of a Stryker fighting vehicle at Fort Carson. (Mark Reis/The Gazette via AP, File) MAGS OUT; MANDATORY CREDITDENVER (AP) — An Army vehicle took the wrong road in the dark and was making a U-turn when it tumbled 250 feet off a cliff at a Colorado training range last year, killing one soldier and injuring five, according to a recently released investigative report.
