Air Force ROTC cadet killed, others hurt in Humvee accident in Idaho

An Air Force ROTC cadet from Alaska was killed in a motor vehicle accident during a training mission at a base in Idaho, military officials said Sunday.

MacKenzie Wilson, 19, died Friday from injuries she sustained in an accident involving a Humvee during a training exercise at Mountain Home Air Force Base, officials at the base said in a release.

Cadet Wilson was an Air Force ROTC student at Oregon State University.

Other cadets and trainers performed first aid until paramedics arrived. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two other people in the vehicle at the time were treated for injuries at a hospital in Boise, Idaho, and later released, officials said.
