A 91-year-old woman was killed after a helicopter crashed into her house in U.S. state of Virginia on Monday.

A spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police said the cause of the crash is under investigation.

Virginia State Police confirmed the fatality in a statement Sunday evening.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which is investigating the crash, confirmed the pilot was the only person in the helicopter when it went down.

This is the terrifying aftermath of a helicopter crash in a residential area in the United States.

Fire crews spent Sunday night into Monday putting out the fire and hot spots that came as a result of the crash.




The helicopter crashed into the Bristol Commons Townhomes on Settlement Drive at about 4:35 p.m., on Sunday, July 8.

Police are still assessing the scene to determine what injuries have occurred, along with identifying the aircraft.

The National Safety Transportation Board has scheduled a media update for 2:30 p.m. Monday.

WAVY-TV showed pictures of the low-rise residential complex, with much of its roof sheared off, exposing a gaping hole in the structure. Neighbors told local news outlets they saw a small, rickety helicopter crash and heard or felt the impact.

The crash happened near the College of William and Mary Dillard Complex, prompting an alert from the university.
