Two highway workers in West Texas have died after being hit by a vehicle in a drunken driving investigation involving a soldier stationed at Fort Bliss.

El Paso police said one bridge worker was dead at the scene early Sunday along Interstate 10. The other worker died at a hospital.

Police detained an 18-year-old driver later identified by Fort Bliss officials as a soldier with the 1st Armored Division.

El Paso police on Monday did not immediately release names of the victims or details on charges in what investigators call an alcohol-related accident.

Police say the driver ignored a traffic barricade.
