Transcript for Investigation launched after deadly West Point crash
We turn to a threat in new York City. A man under arrest accused of plotting an attack after he asked about buying grenades and discussed the possibility of detonating them right here in times square. He was intercepted and officials say he posed no imminent threat. He is not believed to be linked to any other people or a larger plot and he is expected in a court in Brooklyn later today. We're going to turn to the investigation this morning into that deadly training accident at west point. One cadet was killed and 19 cadets and two soldiers injured when a five-ton vehicle rolled over. ABC's gio Benitez is right there at west point in upstate new York with the latest. Good morning, gio. Reporter: Hey, Cecilia, good morning. Investigators are here from Alabama to figure out what caused that cargo truck to roll over. We know that it was heading toward a training site, transporting those cadets, driving through rough terrain as part of that training when the accident happened. Again, one cadet was killed. 19 other cadets injured. Two soldiers were also in that truck and were injured. Let's go ahead and show you what this truck looked like. This is a similar model that weighs five tons. The superintendent here says this is not common even with that rough terrain as part of the training. Now we know that those injured cadets and those injured soldiers are doing well this morning because we know they suffered only minor injuries, but no doubt all of west point right now is thinking about that cadet who lost their life. George. We certainly are. Thank you.
