Statements from the State Police on US Helicopter Crash

Sarah Burgess, a Trooper with the Kentucky State Police has made their statement saying that they are being assisted by numerous agencies in the investigation but agreed to the fact that they also have no further information into the reason and the chain of incidents behind the US helicopter crash and the total casualties sustained by those onboard. Fortunately, the incident happened far away from any residential areas and hence there hasn’t been much of collateral damage as far as lives lost are concerned.

The discussed UH-60 Black Hawk choppers of the US Army help in various military pursuits including air fights and attacks and cater to medical emergencies as well.
