U.S. soldier dies after ‘near fatal accident’
The U.N. said Wednesday that a U.K. soldier has died after he was hit by a vehicle while training at a U.-Majors battalion in Belgium.
U.B.E. military spokeswoman Anne M. Ritchie said the soldier was hit when he was “in a collision with another vehicle that was travelling on the side of the road” in Belgium’s northeastern Flanders region on Friday morning.
The U-Major’s battalion is in the country to train for the upcoming World Cup soccer tournament.
Riggens said U.M. Maj. Stephen “J.B.”
Evans, 25, died early Saturday at the U.
Ns Hospital in Brussels, where he was in stable condition.
Evans had been in Belgium for the World Cup for a few weeks.
Es battalion, which is also known as the U-21s, is in charge of training U.s. troops in the field.
UBS Securities analyst David J. Cohen said Evans was a member of the U .
B. E. battalion, where the U-.20s, U-17s and U-20s are competing for the right to face Germany in the World Series of soccer next month.
Evans was killed after the collision occurred on the highway, Cohen said in a note.
“The U.U.B.’s battalion was conducting a training exercise in a nearby area.
The collision happened during the training and caused the death of U.E.’s (minor) soldier,” Cohen said.
Evans, who is originally from St. Louis, Missouri, joined the U.-21s in 2012.
The United States and other U. S. forces are trying to convince Belgium to give the U20s and the U21s a shot at the 2019 World Cup, a tournament in the United States.
Belgium’s foreign minister said the UB.es battalion has not yet been notified of the death.
He said he was also not notified of Evans death.
E. and the United Kingdom are two of the two countries with the most U. U .
S. troops at the training exercise.
The other country that has the most soldiers is the Netherlands, with around 40.
The World Cup will be played in the Netherlands from May 23-26.
The soccer tournament will be hosted in South Korea.
The top two finishers in the qualifying rounds of the tournament will advance to the finals in Germany in June.
