Officer badly hurt in Army truck smash.
AN officer has suffered a "life-changing injury" after three Army troop carriers crashed in an exercise.
He and a sergeant had to be cut free of the wreckage with severe leg injuries.
They were among 11 people taken to hospital after the off-road crash on Salisbury Plain, near Westdown Camp, Wilts.
Most of the victims were Indian soldiers taking part in mock counter-insurgency operations. Six remained in hospital overnight.
The most seriously hurt were flown to Southampton by air ambulance.
An Army spokesman said: "The families of those involved have been informed and our thoughts are with all those affected."
Operation Ajeya Warrior prepares soldiers for "demanding combat scenarios" and is staged every two years by British and Indian military.
