The U.S. Department of Defense says two soldiers stationed at Fort Carson have died in Iraq.

They are 22-year-old Private First Class Elden Arcand, of White Bear Lake, Minnesota, and 38-year-old Staff Sergeant Brian Morris, of Centreville, Michigan.

The defense department says they died on Sunday in Mosul, when their tractor pulling a 7,500 gallon tanker accidentally rolled over.

Both were assigned to the Army's 360th Transportation Company, 68th Corps Support Battalion, 43rd Area Support Group in Fort Carson.
