FORT HOOD — The convoy of four vehicles was due to leave at 9 the morning of June 2, 2016, but rain would delay the majority of the soldiers who were supposed to conduct the training exercise, according to the Army report on a military vehicle crash that killed eight soldiers and one West Point cadet.

The members of Distribution Platoon, Forward Support Company, were supposed to leave from the company motor pool and travel along East Range Road to North Fort Hood Training Area 12. The training exercise was planned well in advance and a risk management worksheet was completed nearly a month earlier.
