An American servicemember supporting the coalition to defeat the Islamic State group died in Southwest Asia Saturday because of non-combat-related injuries sustained during a vehicle accident, the U.S.-led coalition said in a statement.

The servicemember's name was being withheld until notification of next of kin.

No other information is available while the incident is under investigation.

A Spanish servicemember died earlier this week during a vehicle accident in Iraq. The servicemember was supporting the mission to train Iraqi forces to defeat the militant group.
