3 dead, 3 injured, 6 missing after flood sweeps Army truck at Fort Hood

Posted: Updated:

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- Fort Hood says three soldiers are dead and six are missing after an Army troop truck was washed from a low-water crossing and overturned in a rain-swollen creek at Fort Hood in Central Texas.

A statement from the Texas Army post says the accident happened about 11:30 a.m. Thursday in an area near Cold Springs and Owl Creek.

Three soldiers were rescued from the swift water. They're in stable condition at Coryell Memorial Healthcare System in Gatesville.

Army aircraft, canine search teams, swift-water rescue watercraft and heavy trucks are being used in the search for the six missing soldiers. The names of the dead are being withheld until their relatives can be notified.
