Crashed U.S. Army Helicopter Was on Training Flight

The U.S. Army says a helicopter that crashed in western Germany, killing three soldiers, was on a training mission. It is still investigating the incident.

The UH-60 Black Hawk crashed Wednesday night around 6:45 p.m., killing its three-member crew.

The helicopter was en route to Coleman Army Airfield in Mannheim when it went down in a thick patch of woods near the A67 highway.

No one on the ground was injured.

The U.S. Army said in a statement Thursday that the names of the soldiers killed were being withheld until their relatives could be notified.
