Exclamation Helicopter Crashes, I-70 Closed - July 23, 2009, 10:28 PM

WASHINGTON COUNTY, MD- Two people have been killed in a helicopter crash along Interstate 70 near the Washington County/Frederick County line, according to fire and rescue officials.

I-70 Eastbound is closed in that area.

Authorities are reporting downed power lines and a telephone pole on fire at the scene.

The chopper went down around 10:30 pm near mile marker 37 on I-70 E.

No word yet on injuries or what the helicopter was doing in the area.

The NTSB and FAA are both heading to the scene to investigate.

Yeah, this is the company I fly with. We lost 4 good people. They were coming back from a youth event giving rides for donations. The owner of the company has a nonprofit for disadvantaged kids and generates donations by giving helicopter rides. The weather was pretty bad that night and it sounds like they were trying to avoid the storms. A terrible loss.

Damn, that sucks. I always hate to hear when good people, trying to make a positive difference in the world around them, meet with untimely ends. Kind of like that murdered couple in Florida who had all the Down's Syndrome kids. Meanwhile, wastes of oxygen like Bernie Madoff or Michael Vick just keep on goin'....
