BERLIN (AP): A US military helicopter crashed in western Germany, killing two people, German police said. The military did not immediately confirm the casualties.

Police said a third person was missing.

The aircraft went down about 6:20 pm (1720GMT) on Wednesday in woods near the A67 highway between Viernheim and Lorsch, south of Frankfurt, Hesse state police said.

The helicopter was a UH-60 Black Hawk, said Bruce Anderson, a spokesman for US Army Europe.

However, "we have no information about injuries or deaths or about how many people were on the aircraft," he said.

The Black Hawk is used for air assault and other military operations. It is normally designed to carry 11 combat-loaded troops.
