The death of a Fort Bragg soldier who was hit by a vehicle during training last fall was accidental, investigators have determined.
Sgt. Jalisha Vonshay Tucker, a 24-year-old parachute packer for 3rd Special Forces Group’s Support Battalion, was struck by a vehicle on Yadkin Road near Canopy Lane. She was doing physical training around 6:45 a.m. on Oct. 24 when the accident happened, Army officials have said.
Chris Grey, a spokesman for the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command, said special agents worked with the Fort Bragg Military Police Traffic Accident Investigation Section and Provost Marshal’s Office.
The investigation was completed Jan. 5, he said.
