Four killed after UH-60 aircraft crashes on northeast Fort Hood range

A Fort Hood helicopter on a routine training mission crashed Monday afternoon, killing four crew members, Fort Hood officials said early Tuesday.

The cause of the crash was unknown and will be investigated, officials said.

The crew was assigned to Division West, First Army. Names of the deceased will not be release until 24 hours after next of kin are notified, Fort Hood officials said.
