Reports are coming in that a state police helicopter patrolling the race riots in Charlottesville has crashed on Old Farm Road, near the Birdwood Golf Course at the University of Virginia in Albemarle County. In a video by The Daily Caller, it was first stated that a helicopter had gone down in Charlottesville. Soon after, the above video surfaced.
The crash was also tweeted about by the Virginia Professional Fire Fighters president, Robert Bragg III.
Videos of VSP aircrafts patrolling the air have been shared since the riots broke out this morning. The latest tragedy comes after video surfaced of a car ramming into a group of counter-protesters at today’s white supremacist rally taking place at the university.
This is a developing story.
