Two US Army Black Hawk helicopters crashed in Kentucky during a training mission Wednesday night, resulting in “several casualties,” officials said.
The helicopters, from the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), crashed at around 10 pm Wednesday in Kentucky’s Trigg county, northwest of Fort Campbell, the army base said in a statement early Thursday.
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear had said earlier that fatalities were expected.
“We’ve got some tough news out of Fort Campbell, with early reports of a helicopter crash and fatalities are expected,” he said on Twitter.
He said Kentucky police and emergency management were responding.
“Please pray for all those affected,” Beshear tweeted.
