Authorities identified the soldier from the 502nd Personnel
Service Battalion, 43rd Area Support Group in support of the Fourth
Infantry Division as 22-year-old Specialist Ronald Allen.

He's from Mitchell, Indiana.

The military says the soldier was riding in a convoy between
Tikrit and a military base in Balad yesterday when the soldier's
vehicle got a flat tire. A nearby traffic accident caused a vehicle
to spin out and hit the soldier -- who died that night.
