A police helicopter that was reportedly monitoring the protests and violence in Charlottesville, Virginia has crashed in a wooded area. The FAA said it is investigating the crash and the National Transportation Safety Board will determine its probable cause.

Neighbors who live near Old Farm Road told WVIR the helicopter crashed into the woods.

Fire units and police are at the scene.

Emergency crews were responding, according to CBS affiliate WCAV-TV.

A live stream of the scene posted to Facebook by the Daily Progress shows a massive gathering of police officers around the site. Their names have not yet been released to the public. No one on the ground was injured, law-enforcement officials say.

It came after a white nationalist rally rocked Charlottesville and a auto drove into a crowd of anti-fascist counter protesters.
