2 dead after helicopter crashes near Charlottesville

2 dead as helicopter crashes about 7 miles from Charlottesville, Va.

The crash was confirmed in social media posts by the Virginia State Police and the National Transportation Safety Board.

Two people are dead after a chopper crashed into a wooded area outside of Charlottesville, Virginia, the site of a deadly clash between white supremacists and counter protestors.

This happened Saturday, Aug. 12, near Old Farm Road just after 5 p.m.

"There are two confirmed fatalities", the statement read. At least one person was killed and 19 injured when a vehicle plowed into a group of counter-protesters.




The Bell 407 helicopter crashed a mere seven miles southwest Charlottesville.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

However, it was unclear if the crash may have been linked to the rally. State Police are on scene with Albemarle County police and fire units, the release states. According to Bragg, the helicopter crash is believed to have been a VSP helicopter working the protest.
