MONTICELLO, FLA. — Two members of the National Guard are dead after stopping to help a motorist on Interstate 10.

The crash happened Sunday night in north Florida.

The Florida Times-Union reports Captain Tecarie Czarnecki and Tech Sgt. David Stone were in a military convoy heading west on the interstate, from Camp Blanding to Quincy.

The National Guard says a vehicle in the convoy had a tire blow out and they all pulled over to the side of the road.

When another vehicle swerved into the median to avoid debris, the two guard members walked over to see if the driver needed help. The Florida Highway Patrol says the driver of a Nissan Sentra hit the brakes, swerved off the road to avoid slowing traffic and hit the pair, killing them.
