GOP lawmaker Greg Murphy, who represents North Carolina’s 3rd congressional district, called for transparency amid the investigation.
He said: “I understand investigations that are ongoing, they need to be given clearance to be able to do their job… but also transparency with the public about actually what’s going on, so that God forbid if something were like this to ever happen again, we could prevent it before it ever does.”
Maj. Matt Finnerty, of the US Marine Corps, said the base offered its deepest condolences to the families of those affected, according to McClatchy News.
In January, two Marine Corps were killed near the military base.
Lance Cpl. Jonathan Gierke, 19, and Pcf. Zachary W. Riffle, 18 died after their military vehicle rolled over.
The 2nd Marines Logistics Group confirmed that a total of 17 other people had been injured.
