A new barracks building going up on Camp Pendleton. 49 new barracks buildings are being built on Marine bases in and around San Diego.

One Marine has been killed and 18 others were injured in a rollover crash during routine training at Camp Pendleton Marine Base.

First Lt. Colleen McFadden says the rollover happened Thursday afternoon. She said she had no other details.

The identity of the Marine killed was not released, and the extent of the injuries to the others was unclear.

An investigation is underway.

McFadden said, "we want to ensure the Marines and their family members are being provided for during this difficult time."
