The three soldiers were traveling in a three-vehicle convoy during a storm from Mosul to Tikrit (2 HUMMVs, 1 light medium tactical vehicle).  A civilian vehicle dodged a pothole causing the HUMMVs to swerve.  There was not enough stopping distance between the vehicles causing the LMTV to swerve off the road and turn over, causing the death of three soldiers.
