FORT BLISS, Texas (AP) — A military helicopter from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, has crashed during weekend training exercises at Fort Bliss.

An official with Fort Bliss in El Paso says the CH-47 Chinook crashed Saturday night in a training area near Orogrande, New Mexico, with two pilots and two crewmembers on board. Lt. Col. Lee Peters on Sunday declined to say whether anyone was hurt in the accident involving a chopper from the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade.

Peters said nobody on the ground was hurt. The helicopter crashed during high-altitude and mountainous training.

Experts from the U.S Army Combat Readiness Center from Fort Rucker, Alabama, will investigate the accident.
