A serving soldier from the East Midlands has been killed after being crushed by a military trailer in west Devon.
The 20-year-old, who served with 7 Theatre Logistic Regiment Royal Logistic Corps in Rutland, was part of a small convoy of military vehicles heading towards Okehampton battle camp.
He was hit by an uncoupled trailer and pinned against the towing vehicle, suffering serious head and chest injuries before going into cardiac arrest.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said family had been informed and identification had taken place.
An investigation has now been launched and the Health and Safety Executive has been informed.
Parts of the region were hit by another earthquake today, the second in as many days.
The British Geological Survey says it happened in the Rutland area, and has been felt in parts of Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire.
Today's earth tremor was more powerful, at 3.5 on the Richter scale and it took many people by surprise.

The earthquake felt in Rutland this morning was not powerful enough to have caused any significant damage, according to the British Geological Survey (BGS).
A spokesman for the organisation said earth movement measured this morning was around 100,000 times smaller than a recent 8.2 magnitude Chile earthquake.
In terms of energy release, the Rutland quake was 33-and-a-half-million times smaller.
The BGS says it has had 265 reports from members of the public who say they have felt the quake, with the furthest away coming from Wellingborough, 45 kilometres (27 miles) to the south.
