Military Jet Crashes in Virginia

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 22:40:06 +0000

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(STAUNTON, Va.) -- A military jet en route to Louisiana crashed near Staunton on Wednesday.

A U.S. Department of Defense official confirmed that the plane, an F-15, had originated from the Massachusetts National Guard. No injuries were reported on the ground, though the condition of the pilot was not immediately clear.

Virginia State Police worked Wednesday morning to reach the crash site, which they said was near the side of a mountain. Smoke coming from the side of the mountain was what tipped off officials to the crash site.
