(CNN) — A late night training accident turned deadly, with one Fort Carson soldier dying and six others suffering injuries in a vehicle rollover accident on the Colorado base, the U.S. military said Saturday.

The accident — which is still under investigation — happened around 10 p.m. Friday (midnight ET), according to a military statement.

All of the injured, including one in critical condition, were medically evacuated. The military hasn’t identified them or the soldier killed, as they are notifying next-of-kin.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this tragedy,” the military said.

Located just outside Colorado Springs, Fort Carson is home to a number of Army units including the 4th Infantry Division.
