FORT KNOX, Ky. -

Officials say one U.S. Navy sailor was killed and several others were hurt in a training exercise at Fort Knox in Kentucky.

Fort Knox spokesman Ryan Brus says that the accident happened Wednesday night and involved members of a naval branch at the post in central Kentucky.  Brus had no other details and referred calls to U.S. Navy Lt. David Lloyd.

The U.S. Navy has used Fort Knox as a training ground since World War II.
