Chelsea Fire Captain and Police Chief Killed in Helicopter Crash

Police Chief Riley Scott Sumner and fire Capt. Matt Tuttle were killed yesterday when Tuttle's private helicopter crashed about 5 miles outside of Ann Arbor, near Zeeb and I-94. The two had volunteered to look for a suspect who had run from a traffic stop.

I never had the pleasure of meeting either of them (that I know of), but the police and firemen here in Chelsea have always been nothing but responsive, helpful, and all-around nice people. Our sympathy goes out to the families and friends of both men.

Best coverage so far is at the Freep. More at WWJ.
