Four soldiers were killed in a chopper crash at Fort Hood, yesterday.
Officials say the crew was on a routine training mission, when their UH-60 Black Hawk went down. The crash happened just before 6pm local time, Monday evening, in the northeast portion of the expansive Texas military post.
The crew members were assigned to Division West, First Army, according to several media sources.
Emergency crews found the crash site after an extensive search, said sources.
The names of the service members will not be released until their families are notified. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
This was the second helicopter crash suffered by the Army on the same day. Earlier Monday, an AH-64 Apache helicopter crashed in South Korea. Two aviators died in that incident, according to ABC7
