A 23-year-old Fort Carson soldier who died after he was struck by two cars on Interstate 25 near midnight Saturday was identified as Spc. Timothy Brett Alexander.

Alexander was from Hinesville, Ga., and arrived at Fort Carson in July 2013. He entered the Army in February 2011.

He served as a cavalry scout in the 3rd Brigade Combat Team.

Alexander served one tour in Afghanistan, from April to November of 2012. He earned Army Commendation, Army Good Conduct and National Defense Service medals.

The Colorado State Patrol said Alexander was trying to cross northbound I-25, from the southbound lane near the South Academy Boulevard exit, when he was hit.

"The Fort Carson community is deeply saddened by the death of Spc. Timothy Alexander, and our heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends and fellow soldiers," Fort Carson officials said in a release.

A Toyota Tacoma and Hyundai Azera were traveling northbound in the right lane when both vehicles hit Alexander, troopers said.

The driver of the Toyota was identified as 46-year-old Adela Marquez of Denver. The driver of the Hyundai was Sarah King of Colorado Springs, troopers said.

Both drivers and King's passenger were not injured in the crash. Alexander died on scene.
