(Trends Wide) — Two people have died after a mid-air collision between a helicopter and a plane in Arizona this Friday morning, according to Chandler Fire Department spokesman Keith Welch.
Welch told Trends Wide affiliates KTVK / KPHO that his department received the call around 7:45 am local time, and found a helicopter downed and on fire in a field. The two passengers had passed away, Welch said.
The fixed-wing aircraft that was involved in the crash landed safely at Chandler Airport.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) told Trends Wide that it is gathering information, but had no further details at this time.
Chandler police are investigating the accident and seeking information from potential witnesses, asking if anyone videotaped the accident.
