- The Washington Times - Saturday, April 16, 2016

A helicopter crashed Saturday near BWI Airport, disrupting train service and causing a brush fire, but there were no fatalities, multiple news reports said.

The Associated Press said three people who were on the chopper suffered no serious injuries but were taken to the hospital for evaluation.

The helicopter went down on the train tracks near Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and caused a brush fire, a local CBS News station said.

A private contractor was using the helicopter in the area to do a land survey, the station said.

While there were no delays at the airport, there were delays to MARC and Amtrak services, WTOP said.

Chelsea Kopta, an Amtrak spokeswoman, told AP Saturday in an email that all train service between Baltimore and Washington had been placed on hold due to the crash.
