The U.S. Military Academy at West Point says one of its cadets died in an accident Thursday morning near a training area in New York state. Twenty cadets and two soldiers were injured, the academy says.
The accident occurred around 6:45 a.m. ET and involved a light medium tactical vehicle, the military’s multipurpose transport truck. The truck’s rear is fitted with two benches and covered by a soft canopy. The academy says the accident happened off Route 293, near the Camp Natural Bridge training site, which is about 7 miles west-southwest of West Point.
