Two Marines injured after parked Humvee is rear-ended on Okinawa Expressway
CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa — Two U.S. Marines were injured Thursday when their Humvee was rear-ended by a 2-ton truck that went on to hit another vehicle on the Okinawa Expressway, an Okinawa police spokesman said.
The unidentified Marines, both in their 20s, were seated in their parked vehicle alongside the two-lane expressway between the Ishikawa Interchange and the Okinawa-Kita Interchange exits when the truck struck the Humvee from behind at about 4 p.m., the spokesman said.

“The cause of the accident is currently under investigation,” he said. “The Marines said they were driving from Camp Hansen to [Camp] Kinser.”
