1 killed, 2 injured in Blackhawk helicopter crash in Maryland

One crew member was killed and two others injured Monday when a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter crashed on the Breton Bay Golf Course in Leonardtown, Maryland.

The U.S. Army is investigating the incident, which took place during a routine training exercise. The three crew members, the only people on the helicopter, were part of the 12th Aviation Battalion, stationed at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. One crew member is in critical condition, and the other is seriously injured, the U.S. Army said. A golf course employee told CNN the helicopter crashed in a small patch of trees between two golf holes, and another witness said it looked as though the helicopter may have stalled out before it plummeted to the ground.
