9 Killed in Black Hawk Helicopter Crash

On Wednesday a tragic crash occurred between two Black Haawk helicopters during a training exercise in Kentucky. The crash left 9 servicemen dead. 

The incident happened at about 10 p.m. and involved two 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) HH60 Black Hawks on a routine training mission. They were practicing medical evacuation drills and the crash happened in between.

“The command is currently focused on caring for the servicemembers and their families,” the fort said, adding that the incident is under investigation. Lubas said that the Army is doing “everything we can” to notify families as quickly as possible. Some are outside the United States, he said, and he was not able to say when families would be notified. 

Kentucky governor Andy Beshear said he and Tennessee governor Bill Lee were “committed” to supporting the families who lost loved ones. 

“There are no state lines when it comes to taking care of these families and helping them with their grief,” he said.

Beshear also tweeted that he is traveling to Fort Campbell “to support our troops and their families after last night’s tragic incident.”

Last month, two Tennessee National Guard pilots were killed when their Black Hawk helicopter crashed in Alabama during a routine training mission.
