VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — A sailor who was killed when a civilian crashed into a security vehicle at a base in Virginia was a married father of one who had been in the Navy less than two years.
The Virginian-Pilot reports that Petty Officer 3rd Class Oscar Jesus Temores died Saturday when the driver of a Chevy Silverado pick-up truck entered the Joint Expeditionary Base Fort Story at a high rate of speed. The vehicle was chased by security and collided with a patrol car driven by Temores.
Temores was 23 and had a 2-year-old son.
The Navy said 130 first responders, family members, friends and fellow sailors attended a candlelight vigil Monday.
It’s unclear why the civilian drove onto the base. The Naval Criminal Investigative Service and Virginia Beach police are investigating.
