Many of the deaths and injuries to American soldiers in Iraq are the result of vehicle accidents rather than bullets or bombs. Zagaroli's series examines how military vehicles are often out of date, do not have standard safety equipment, and are being driven by soldiers with little or no training. Because the Pentagon did not send enough armored vehicles to Iraq, soldiers fitted their own Humvees with make-shift armor that the vehicles were not designed to carry, which made them more accident prone.
