    . SAN DIEGO ? A Navy sailor was killed and five others were hurt when a military convoy was involved in a chain reaction crash Tuesday morning, according to authorities.

    California Highway Patrol said five military trucks were southbound on Interstate 5 near San Onofre State Beach shortly before 7 a.m. when the crash happened.



    For reasons that are still under investigation, the convoy began to slow causing a chain reaction collision. One of the truck trailers was pushed forward into the cab causing fatal injuries to the driver,? CHP said in a news release.

    A 26-year-old service member died at the scene. Another sailor in his early 20s has severe injuries and four other service members, two women and two men in their early 20s, suffered minor injuries, CHP said.



    The surviving victims were taken to Camp Pendleton Naval Hospital and Mission Hospital in Orange County for treatment.

    First responders and personnel from CHP?s Oceanside area, Camp Pendleton Fire Department, United States Marine Corps Camp Pendleton Provost Marshal?s Office and the United States Marine Corps Criminal Investigation Division responded to the scene.



    The identity of the sailor who died has not yet been released.

    The crash is under investigation and CHP is asking anyone with information to contact their Oceanside office at 760-643-3400.

    Aaron Michael Fish (26) Killed in a convoy crash.


    SAN DIEGO — The medical examiner’s office has identified the 26-year-old sailor killed this week when his vehicle was smashed between two others in a military convoy pileup.

    Aaron Michael Fish was an active-duty member of the U.S. Navy stationed in Oxnard and had been driving one of the five military vehicles involved in the chain-reaction pileup, which left five other service members hurt, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

    The crash happened on Interstate 5 near San Onofre State Beach just before 7 a.m. Tuesday.

    “The convoy was headed southbound on the I-5 freeway near the Oceanside area, when a vehicle stopped suddenly in front of the lead convoy vehicle,” the medical examiner’s report reads. “This caused a chain reaction of rear-ending collisions with (Fish’s) vehicle between two other military vehicles.”

    Fish died at the scene. Another sailor in his early 20s has severe injuries and four other service members, two women and two men in their early 20s, suffered minor injuries, CHP said.

    The surviving victims were taken to Camp Pendleton Naval Hospital and Mission Hospital in Orange County for treatment.

    First responders and personnel from CHP’s Oceanside area, Camp Pendleton Fire Department, United States Marine Corps Camp Pendleton Provost Marshal’s Office and the United States Marine Corps Criminal Investigation Division responded to the scene.

    The Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 5 released a statement Tuesday afternoon about the crash.

    “We mourn the loss of our shipmate, our thoughts and prayers are with the sailor’s family, friends, and coworkers during this difficult time. NMCB-5 is supporting all the service members’ family, friends, and loved ones during this time of grief,” the statement said.
