Two soldiers have been killed after they were struck by a car in Florida after they had paid a surprise visit to their families before their deployment to Iraq. The pair apparently got in a fist fight with each other in the car.
Tim Frith from the Highway Patrol said: "We think that one of the subjects may have been, certainly had, consumed alcohol. To what level, that's what we're waiting to determine." The soldiers had stopped their car and got out to keep fighting.
An oncoming car managed to swerve and miss the pair, but the car behind the first didn't have time to react. Two passengers in the soldiers' car were uninjured.
