FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - Fort Campbell says five soldiers have been injured in a training exercise.

A statement from the post on the Kentucky-Tennessee border says the soldiers were injured when a chinook helicopter made a hard landing. The statement says the soldiers were in the middle of a routine training exercise Wednesday evening when the incident happened.

All five soldiers were taken to medical treatment facilities, according to the statement.

Media cited an Army statement that said two crew members were in stable condition Thursday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and three others were treated at the post hospital and released.

No further information was immediately available.
