An explosion at Fort Bragg injured 15 soldiers belonging to U.S. Army Special Operations Command on Thursday morning.

Authorities have not disclosed what caused the explosion on the training field, but in the meantime, a medical helicopter has transported the 15 soldiers to the Womack Army Medical Center, WRAL reports.

ABC11, however, has determined that the explosion occurred after a vehicle rolled over, indicating yet another training accident. Over the last three years, training accidents have caused four times as many fatalities as combat operations.

The Army has declined to release any information on the medical condition of the soldiers.

“There are injuries but we don’t know extent,” Army Lt. Col. Robert Bockholt, a spokesman for Army Special Operations Command, told Fox News.
