Deadly Fort Stewart Helicopter Crash "Not an Accident"

April 06, 2022

According to an article, the tragic two-helicopter crash at Wright Army Airfield, Georgia, might not have been an accident as previously believed.*  

The article states that the incident is now under criminal investigation. Wright Army Airfield is a dual-use airport that is utilized by the City of Hinesville and Fort Stewart.

The Army Times states that a source who has knowledge of investigative efforts explained that the happening was not an accident. The source provided an anonymous tip and explained the ongoing investigation. 

One spokesperson for the 3rd Infantry Division, Lieutenant Colonel Lindsey Elder, stated that the Army's Criminal Investigation Division is investigating the helicopter crash. According to Army accident investigation regulations, the Criminal Investigation Division's involvement suggests that some sort of criminal activity is suspected in the fatal helicopter crash. The regulation states that CRC experts lead routine accident inquiries, but accident investigations are discontinued when the evidence indicates a criminal act has occurred.
