COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- A Fort Carson soldier killed in a two-car accident after a police chase has been identified as a 20-year-old Camas, Wash., man, the Army said Tuesday.

Spc. Kacey C. Day died after a chase by Fort Carson military police that began on the post at about 3 a.m. Sunday.

"Fort Carson military police attempted to initiate a traffic stop for erratic driving on post. (Day) didn't stop and they continued to follow him off post and the car crashed," said Fort Carson spokeswoman Karen Linne.

A woman who was riding with Day and the driver of another car were both injured.

The circumstances surrounding the accident remain under investigation.

"The Mountain Post family is deeply saddened by the death of one of our own. Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of this soldier," said Col. B. Shannon Davis, Fort Carson chief of staff.
