(Newser) – Four Army Reserve soldiers are injured, two critically, after a Humvee accident on the New Jersey Turnpike, reports NBC New York. Police haven't determined what went wrong, though witnesses say a tire flew off the vehicle around 2:30pm Thursday, per the Courier News. They tried to lift the flipped Humvee before authorities arrived but were unsuccessful. All occupants from Fort Totten in Queens, NY, were eventually taken to the hospital, including one who had to be airlifted. "I cannot believe that three of our brave soldiers almost died because the truck's tire broke off," says one witness on Twitter. (Read more New Jersey stories.)
