U.S. military truck surprises hospital

Date Posted: 2010-03-18

The appearance of a U.S. military truck and a Humvee driving into the entry area to the Chubu Hospital emergency room in Uruma City caused a bit of a commotion last Friday.

The Marine Corps confirms a U.S. Marine Corps Logistics Vehicle systems and a Humvee entered the grounds of the hospital by accident last Friday. A Marine Corps spokesman says the two vehicles, part of a four-vehicle convoy, “were in the process of transiting U.S. military facilities when they mistakenly turned into the hospital. The vehicles,” says the spokesman, “promptly turned around to rejoin the convoy. The incident did not pose any danger to the local community at any time.”

The Marine Corps says it is now investigating exactly what happened, and confirmed it is working together with Okinawa Prefecture Police. “The U.S. Marine Corps considers the safety of the local community and its Marines one of its highest priorities,” said the spokesman.
