Military investigators will try to determine what caused a deadly helicopter crash at Fort Hood.

One crew member was killed and the other was injured last night when the Apache helicopter crashed while on a training flight just north of Lake Belton.

Names of the two soldiers weren't immediately released.

Spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Withington says the injured crew member was treated at Darnell Army Community Hospital and released.

Fort Hood last November lost a brigadier general and six other soldiers when their Black Hawk helicopter crashed about 30 miles northeast of the post.

The chopper went down after hitting a television tower cable during thick fog.

Those soldiers were on their way to inspect repairs at the Red River Army Depot near Texarkana.
