VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — A Navy master-at-arms is dead after a civilian collided with a base security vehicle while crashing the gate at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story Saturday night. 

WTKR reports Master-at-Arms 3rd Class Oscar Temores was struck head-on by a Chevrolet Silverado driven by an “unauthorized civilian” who drove through a security gate at a “high rate of speed.” Temores died from his injuries later that day. The suspect has been hospitalized. 

"The Master-at-Arms who died served his country and this base in an exemplary manner with honor, distinction and professionalism," Commanding Officer Capt. Joey Frantzen told WTKR. "Fort Story is a very small and close knit, tight base. The loss of our Sailor will not only be felt through the Navy but more so here at Fort Story where he worked, where people knew him, where his fellow ship mates - active duty and civilian served with him." 

Temores had served with the U.S. Navy Security Forces for 10 months. He is survived by his wife and two-year-old son.
