Officials at a military base in southern New Mexico said one person was killed and another was injured in a training accident involving two F-16s.

A civilian contractor died Tuesday night. The injured service member was released from a hospital after treatment.

The jets, stationed at Holloman Air Force Base, belonged to the 56th Fighter Wing that is headquartered at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Arizona.

A statement from the base said the jets had used unspecified air-to-ground munitions at Red Rio Range, part of the White Sands Missile Range complex.

The accident was under investigation.

No other information was available.
