ROCKY MOUNT, Va. (AP) -- A bridge in Franklin County has been named in honor of a soldier who was killed in Iraq in 2005.

Media outlets report that a ceremony was held Wednesday at the Army Corporal Jared William Kubasak Bridge. The bridge on Route 40 spans the Pigg River near Rocky Mount.

The 25-year-old soldier from Rocky Mount was killed Dec. 12, 2005, by a roadside bomb.

Kubasak was a member of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment based in Fort Carson, Colorado.
