MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – The Tennessee National Guard says one of their Black Hawk helicopters crashed in Alabama, killing two crew members.
Brig. Gen. Warner Ross said Wednesday that two members of the Tennessee National Guard were killed during a flight-training mission.
The helicopter crashed around 3 p.m. local time and caught fire.
The Madison County sheriff’s office said there were no injuries to anyone on the ground when the helicopter crashed.
The UH-60 helicopter, more widely known as a Black Hawk, crashed in the unincorporated community of Harvest along Alabama Highway 53, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency said in a statement.
