Virginia State Police are saying two people are dead after a helicopter crashed Saturday evening.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

State and local police were responding to a deadly three-car crash at a white nationalist rally earlier this afternoon.

Virginia State Police said there are "two confirmed fatalities" and that the helicopter is one of theirs, according to WSB. The crash happened in woods near a home on Old Farm Road. Police have sealed off the area.

A 10-second video posted to Twitter and filmed on a golf course shows thick black smoke rising from behind the trees.

The state chopper went down near the Birdwood Golf Course, the Daily Progress newspaper reported.

The helicopter was seen hovering at a low altitude over the houses before the crash occurred, witnesses told the Richmond Times Dispatch.
