WASHINGTON - A US Navy enlisted man was killed and as many as seven people were injured when their Humvee vehicle rolled over during a training exercise for elite SEAL forces at Fort Knox, Kentucky, a SEAL spokesman said on Friday.

The accident occurred at 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, and the cause remains under investigation, said Lieutenant David Lloyd, a spokesman for Navy Special Warfare Group 2. The group comprises the four SEAL teams (Sea, Air, Land Teams) on the US East Coast.

Five to seven people were injured, and all but two of those involved in the accident were Navy SEALs, he said.
