Four dead, two injured when JBLM helicopters crash

Four soldiers were killed and two others injured when two helicopters crashed in the aviation training area southwest of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, said base spokesman Lt. Col. Gary Dangerfield.

The circumstances of the crash are still unclear, but Dangerfield said it involved two OH-58 Kiowa choppers and occurred about two miles south of Spurgeon Creek Road Southeast and Rainier Road Southeast.

Dangerfield was on his way to the scene and did not yet know what unit the soldiers were from. Police and Army officials are blocking access to the crash area.
