Many feared dead  as two United State Military helicopters crashed during training.

The Fort Campbell military base in Kentucky disclosed that the crew members were flying two HH60 Blackhawk helicopters during a routine training mission before the crash.

The collision was said to have happened around 10pm US time on Wednesday.

The cause of the crash is under investigation and the command said it is “currently focused on caring for the service members and their families”.

It is unclear the number of people who were on board.

Andy Beshear, Kentucky’s governor, said fatalities were expected and that the state’s police and emergency management service were responding to the situation.

“We’ve got some tough news out of Fort Campbell, with early reports of a helicopter crash and fatalities are expected. @kystatepolice, @KentuckyEM and local officials are responding,” Beshear tweeted.

The governor added that more information will be shared once available while calling for prayers for all those affected.
