Two state police troopers were killed in the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, yesterday, as a group of white supremacists took over the college town for hate-filled rally.

"Albemarle County police and fire responded first", said Geller, standing a few hundred yards from the crash site.

Trooper-Pilot Bates graduated from the Virginia State Police Academy in August 2004 as a member of the 107th Basic Session. "It appeared to honestly invert to turn upside down".

White nationalist clashes in Virginia linked to deaths of 2 people aboard crashed helicopter. "This is a devastating loss for their families, the Virginia State Police, and the entire commonwealth". "Frankly I was a little shaken".

The pilot, Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen is the son of Loudon County Commissioner, Henry Cullen.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe issued a statement on the deaths.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of Jay and Berke, both of whom were our close friends and trusted members of our team". Jay has flown us across the Commonwealth for more than three and a half years. "These heroes were a part of our family and we are simply heartbroken". Our hearts go out to their wives and children, and we stand by to support them during this difficult time.

President Donald Trump also issued a tweet. A 32-year-old woman died when a car plowed into a crowd dispersing after police broke up the melee in the city's downtown. You're all among the best this nation produces. There is no indication of foul play being a factor in the crash.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, a video posted by TMZ appears to show the helicopter crash along with its fiery aftermath. The Bell 407 helicopter was assisting public safety resources with the ongoing situation in Charlottesville.

"Our state police and law enforcement family at-large are mourning this tragic outcome to an already challenging day", said Colonel W. Steven Flaherty, Virginia State Police Superintendent.
