Fort Hood officials say at least three soldiers are dead and six more are missing after an Army troop truck overturned Thursday morning.

Twelve people were onboard the light medium tactical vehicle when it overturned in a rain-swollen creek.

Three soldiers were rescued from the swift waters and are in stable condition.  Three others were found dead downstream from the vehicle and six remain unaccounted for.  Officials say the search is on-going, and they are using aircraft, watercraft, canine units and civilian rescue teams.
