VIDEO: Helicopter Crash In Tampa Killing One, But Not In The Chopper

The Florida Highway Patrol said the private helicopter suffered engine failure and crashed near 50th Street and Palm River Road in Palm River in Tampa. It struck a utility pole. A piece of the rotor broke off and hit a passenger in the silver Chevy Silverado you see in the video heading the other direction

FHP said a pickup truck was traveling northbound on 50th Street approaching Palm River Road when it was hit.

FHP said a passenger in the Chevrolet Silverado was killed. The victim was the father of the driver. Very sad, VERY random.
