Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Fourteen Americans died in a pair of helicopter crashes in Afghanistan on Monday, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said.

In the deadlier crash, a helicopter went down in the country's west.

"Seven U.S. service members and three U.S. civilians were killed," an ISAF statement said. "Those injured include 14 Afghan service members, 11 U.S. service members and one U.S. civilian."

Enemy action was not suspected in the crash, the military said.
