Four people are dead and one is injured after a Maryland State Police helicopter crashed while on approach to Andrews Air Force Base in Prince George's County.

The helicopter, known as Trooper 2, disappeared while on a medevac mission just before midnight. The helicopter was eventually discovered on the dead-end of Berry Lane at Walker Mill Regional Park around 2 a.m. after an extensive search.

Initial reports indicate that five persons were on board the helicopter when it crashed. It was supposed to return to Andrews Air Force Base, where it is based, with two trauma patients around midnight. The only reported survivor is a patient.

Yeah, not a very good start to my day.

From some reports, it was supposed to go to the hospital rather than Andrews, but had to divert due to weather. Of course, it could have been anything that actually caused the crash, but weather seems to be a factor.

As a local Police Officer and a Volunteer Fire Fighter this hits to close to home. I have had the chance to work with the brave men and women of the Maryland State Police Aviation Unit and you could not ask for a better dedicated group of people.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families on this sad day,

IN VALOR THERE IS HOPE!
