Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear took to Twitter early this morning to sadly announce that a deadly helicopter crash occurred at Fort Campbell. 

“We’ve got some tough news out of Fort Campbell, with early reports of a helicopter crash, and fatalities are expected,” the governor, Andy Beshear, said in a post on Twitter, adding that local authorities and emergency services were responding to the incident.

Two Black Hawk helicopters operated by the 101st Airborne Division were being flown by experienced Army aviators when they crashed in Trigg County around 10 pm on Wednesday, as reported by Fort Campbell’s public affairs office.

The command said that its primary concern is the well-being of the service members and their families and that the cause of the crash is being investigated.

“Please pray for all those affected,” Beshear said in the message.
