A man who was critically injured in a motorcycle wreck Monday night in College Station has died.

College Station police say Caleb Tate, 20, a Texas A&M student from Seguin, was thrown from his motorcycle when a car turned in front of him on Southwest Parkway near Texas Avenue.

A statement from the Texas A&M Corp of Cadets Commandant says,

"It is with extreme sadness that I confirm the death of cadet Caleb Tate ’15, a member of the Corps of Cadets, as a result of a traffic accident Monday evening in College Station. Caleb was a junior University Studies major in the College of Liberal Arts from Seguin and served as the Training Sergeant for Company P-2. He was pursuing a Navy contract. All who knew Caleb remember him as a sociable, confident young man who had a resilient work ethic and a good sense of humor. He was a very well-liked young man, and his loss will affect all of us for a long time to come.

I want to offer my condolences to Caleb Tate’s family, friends and fellow cadets on his loss. We all stand together as Aggies today as we mourn the loss of one of our own. Caleb Tate will be missed by all of us.

As an Aggie, I hope the Tate family will take solace in knowing that Caleb will never be forgotten, and that the unique Aggie spirit of camaraderie that is such an integral part of Texas A&M and the Corps of Cadets will hold fast for them in this very difficult time.

“We are the Aggies, the Aggies are we. True to each other, as Aggies can be.”

Brigadier General Joe E. Ramirez, Jr. '79
Commandant, Texas A&M Corps of Cadets"
