According to news reports and emergency radio traffic coming out of the area, it appears that a helicopter has crashed in the vicinity of Charlottesville, Virginia. It was a Virginia State police helicopter and at least two are confirmed dead. At least one SOFREP source claims that the helicopter is likely a “Medflight” (EMS) helicopter that flies out of Chesterfield, Virginia, though that is unconfirmed. State police run the Medflight program in conjunction with Chesterfield Fire and EMS. The State Police own the helicopters and provide troopers to fly, while Chesterfield Fire proves flight medics.
