FALLON, Nev. (AP) — The Navy says a fighter jet has crashed during a training exercise in western Nevada, and the pilot's condition is not immediately known.

The F/A-18C Hornet crashed about 3 p.m. Saturday on a Navy range training complex about 70 miles east of Naval Air Station Fallon.

Lt. Reagan Lauritzen of Naval Air Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet said she didn't immediately know the pilot's condition.

She said Navy personnel were heading to the scene, and anticipated more details to be released late Saturday.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.
