Black Hawk Military Helicopter Crashes Near Alabama Highway Leaving No Survivors

A Black Hawk military helicopter crashed near Highway 53 near Huntsville, Alabama on Wednesday, leaving no survivors, authorities said.

The helicopter belonged to the Tennessee National Guard, according to a U.S. official.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office said the crash occurred at 3 p.m. near the intersection of Burwell Road and Highway 53.

“A UH-60 Helicopter crashed on Alabama 53 near the intersection of Burrell Road in Madison County,” ALEA said in a statement.

“Troopers with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) Highway Patrol Division in-conjunction with deputies from the Madison County Sheriff’s Office are assisting with securing the scene.”

“We anticipate evening traffic to experience heavy delays in this area throughout the evening,” the sheriff’s office said.

Tammy Adams told ABC that she heard what sounded like a car without a muffler before seeing the helicopter overhead.

“Then bam, we heard a hit,” she said.

“We saw it hit the ground and it exploded.”

“We knew there could not be anybody surviving that,” she said so she offered a prayer for anyone on board.

Redstone Arsenal told ABC: “Redstone Arsenal leaders are aware of reports of a helicopter incident near Highway 53 in Huntsville.

“First responders are on scene, and Redstone Arsenal is in full support of local authorities in their active investigation.

“Initial investigations have not determined that the incident is connected to Redstone Arsenal assets, and we will continue to support community authorities as the situation develops.”
