A Navy SEAL from Long Island was killed when a Humvee carrying him and seven others overturned 
during a training exercise at Fort Knox in Kentucky, military officials said Friday.

 
Lt. David Lloyd, a spokesman for the Naval Special Warfare Group Two in Virginia Beach, Va., said the Humvee was part of a convoy on the post when it overturned Wednesday night. What caused it to flip remains under investigation, he said.
 
The Navy said the SEAL who died was Special Warfare Operator Third Class Jonathan H. Kaloust, who was based at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek in Fort Story, Va.
 
Kaloust, 23, of Massapequa, joined the Navy in March 2011.
 
The seven survivors were treated for minor injuries and released from a hospital.
 
The sailors had been conducting tactical training, but Lloyd would not release further details about the exercise because it was considered sensitive.
 
Naval Special Warfare Group Two oversees a variety of operations, including reconnaissance and counterterrorism.
