SAN DIEGO - Officials say the Marine killed in a truck rollover during training at a California base is a 21-year-old from Louisiana.

The Marine Corps said in a statement Friday night that the man who died in Thursday night's accident at Camp Pendleton is Cpl. Bryan Michael Lauw of Denham Springs.

The statement says Lauw was an anti-tank missileman from the 1st Marine Division who during his career had served aboard an amphibious assault ship in Central America and South America.

18 other Marines were injured - six of them critically - when a multi-ton truck carrying them during a routine training exercise flipped on a paved road at the base.
