The West Point cadet killed when a military vehicle overturned was identified on Friday as a 22-year-old man from West Orange, New Jersey.
Christopher Morgan — who was set to be a part of the class of 2020 — died and 21 soldiers were injured on Thursday when the vehicle overturned and rolled at least 15 feet down a steep embankment, officials said.
Morgan’s wrestling coach, Kevin Ward, mourned his loss in a statement.
“We are devastated by the news of Chris’ passing. He was a talented, hardworking, and determined athlete who loved his sport,” Ward said.
“Chris had an infectious personality with a smile big enough to fill any room, and a heart big enough to love everyone around him. He made everyone around him better and he will be greatly missed.”
