Fort Carson has identified the soldier killed in a car accident Thursday night not far from Fort Carson.
Pvt. Jordan M. Dubois, 20, died at the scene after crashing his pick-up truck into a tree in the area of Westmeadow and London Green Way, on the southwest side of the Springs.
Before Dubois hit the tree, he reportedly hit a fence and a light pole.
Witnesses described the sound on impact as "an explosion."
At 5:49 p.m. Thursday, Dubois wrote in a Facebook post that he was planning suicide, posting what he labeled "my last picture" minutes later. Friends and family appeared to then initiate a search.
Fort Carson tells 11 News that the crash is still under investigation; at this time, it's not known if it was an accident or intentional.
Dubois, originally of Milwaukie, Ore., joined the Army on February 1 of last year, and joined his current unit--the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division--on December 26. While never deployed, in his brief career he received several awards, including the National Defense Service Medal and Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.
