Four different crashes happened during fallen soldier Cpl. Thomas Walker's processional in Ohio, according to Cleveland Police Patrolman Association member Charlie McGeever.

At least one of the crashes was critical.

Walker, an infantryman who had been stationed at Fort Stewart since 2016, was one of three soldiers killed earlier this month when their armored vehicle rolled off a bridge and submerged in water during training.

He had been awarded the Army Good Conduct Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Korea Defense Service Medal and the Army Service Ribbon.

Walker graduated from Conneaut High School in 2016.
