Probable cause detemined for helicopter crash of Sumner and Tuttle

Chelsea's Police Chief Scott Sumner and Fire Captain Matt Tuttle were tragically killed in a helicopter crash in April 2006. Today, news comes from federal transportation investigators who have discovered what may have caused the accident. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) reports that there may have been water in fuel tank, causing the engine to fail.

News Sources:
This news comes directly from the AP wire, but I'm surprised to find it coming from Lansing and Brighton before seeing it in the Ann Arbor News. If any other details become available, I will add the links here.

Although it has been a year and half since this tragedy occurred, the news is still painful to hear. Many continuing blessings to their families and loved ones.

The Ann Arbor News posted a few more details in their article a short time later.
