Two Fort Carson soldiers killed in helicopter crash during training in California – The Denver Post

Two Fort Carson soldiers died Saturday in a helicopter crash during training in the Southern California desert, officials said.

An AH-64 Apache crashed about 1 a.m. at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin.

Both soldiers killed were assigned to the 4th Infantry Division, said Maj. Gen. Randy A. George, the commander of the Colorado Springs Army post. Their identities have not been released, pending notification of next of kin.

The fatal crash will trigger at least two investigations. Commanders will kick off an inquiry and a second probe will be conducted by experts at the Army Safety Center in Alabama. Most crash investigations take at least three months.
