MIAMI (AP) — Authorities say three U.S. Army soldiers were injured in a night training accident at Homestead Air Reserve Base near Miami.

Base spokeswoman Donna Dixon told The Associated Press the accident happened early Tuesday while the soldiers were conducting a training exercise. News outlets in Miami reported the soldiers were parachuting at the time of the accident.

Dixon says the soldiers were "medevaced" to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in Miami for treatment. She says their conditions won't be released until their families have been notified.

Local media reported that the soldiers are members of the Golden Knights parachute demonstration team, which is base in Fort Bragg but is based at Homestead during the winter.

No further details were immediately available.

Homestead is south of Miami.
