A SOLDIER has been charged after a truck accident killed one soldier and injured several at Holsworthy Army Barracks last October.
Police from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit charged the 21-year-old male with dangerous driving occasioning death and with six counts of dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm.
The police say the accused man was driving a troop carrier on an unsealed road during a routine military training activity about 8.45am on October 8.
At the time of the crash there were three personnel seated in the cabin of the vehicle and a further 15 in the rear.
All those in the rear were ejected from the vehicle.
Those on board sustained various injuries and were taken to several hospitals.
A 21-year-old, Jordan Ronald Penpraze (pictured), sustained serious head injuries and was taken to Liverpool Hospital in a critical condition.
He died three days later.
The driver of the vehicle was granted conditional bail, and will appear at the Downing Centre Local Court on September 16.
A spokesman for the Department of Defence said the department would not comment on the matter, because it was at present before the courts.
He said no further comment could be made at this time.
