The accident happened between 4:30 and 5 p.m., officials said. Three others were injured.

More than six hours after the deaths, little additional information had been released. The Jamboree is being held on the grounds of the Army's Fort A.P. Hill; Army officials referred questions to Jamboree officials, who declined to detail how the accident occurred.
