A UH-60 helicopter from Fort Belvoir made a "hard landing" around 1:50 p.m. near Leonardtown, Maryland, the northern Virginia Army base said in a statement on its Facebook page.

Broadcastify, which carries live streams of public safety radio transmissions, quoted the county fire and rescue department as saying one person was confirmed dead and two other people required medical evacuation to a trauma center.

"We are deeply saddened by this loss within our community", said Maj.

A team from the Army Combat Readiness Center, based in Fort Rucker, Ala., will travel to Leonardtown Tuesday to investigate what caused the crash. Gen. Bradley A. Becker, commanding general for Joint Force Headquarters National Capital Region and the U.S. Army Military District of Washington, said in the statement.

Leonardtown is about 60 miles southeast of Washington, D.C.

The incident comes less than two weeks after a military jet crashed in a wooded area just outside a suburban Washington neighborhood. The pilot was on a routine training mission at the time.
