Adjust font size:

Four people were killed on Friday when two television news helicopters collided while following a police chase in Phoenix, Arizona.



A pilot and photographer aboard each chopper were killed, police confirmed.


Local television station KNXV reported that it owned one of the choppers. The other was from KTVK.


Within a minute, other stations with helicopters in the area began reporting news of the crash.


The men on the choppers were doing live coverage as police chased a man driving a construction truck who had fled a traffic stop and was driving erratically, hitting several cars and driving on the sidewalk at times.


The man fleeing from police was later taken into custody after barricading himself inside a house, police said


Both helicopters went down in a park in central Phoenix and caught fire. No one on the ground was hurt.
