7:08 pm
were transported to the medical center in hagerstown. the other crash scene was at highland and monroe streets in frederick where there was a self-storage facility. there was a helicopter that had crash between storage lockers at that location. there were three people confirmed deceased at that location. we do not know if all three were on board that aircraft. that is part of the ongoing investigation. maryland state police criminal enforcement investigators are conducting the preliminary investigation. we do not have identities of any of these persons at this time. we are working to establish those identities of the deceased and then make notifications to family. i do not know when that would be completed. the national transportation safety board was, of course,
7:09 pm
notified and has sent an investigator who is mr. brian rainer and i will introduce him to you at this time. sir? >> good evening. my name is brian rayner. i'm a senior air safety investigator with the national transportation safety board. i want to begin by thanking major hughes of the maryland state police, his officers, his troopers, frederick county, their response in securing what will certainly be vital evidence in understanding this tragedy. i have only very, very preliminary information as mr. shipley explained. the accident occurred at 3:39. it involved a cirrus sr22 registration november 122e sierra and a robinson r44
7:10 pm
helicopter november 7518q. at this point i've only done a cursory exam of the two sites just to see where each aircraft was located, their condition, what we're going to need to do to effect a safe examination of each. as we speak i am assembling an increasingly larger team to work this accident. so far we have helicopter specialists en route. we have an air traffic control investigator enroute. we may expand the team to include an operations specialist. i don't know that at this point. i haven't had an opportunity yet to speak to any of my supervisors, but i am the investigator in charge and if i reach out and ask for help, it will be provided to me.
7:11 pm
what we'll do is just go through the process in that we will begin with the most perishable evidence first and that's witness statements and the physical evidence here of both aircraft and then we'll move on to information that's archived in places like aircraft logbooks and air  traffic control computers and that sort of thing and we'll divide the investigation into three basic parts. we'll look at the airmen. we'll look at the emergencies and we'll look at the environment and the airmen will be their certificates, the privileges that they could exercise with those certificates, what type of flights were being conducted, whether they were pleasure, business, instructional, that sort of thing. and then there will also be the medical aspect.
7:12 pm
from what i understand the two occupants of the airplane have been released from the hospital. one is uninjured. the other has a laceration. tragically there are three fatalities at the scene of the helicopter and then we'll look at the machines. we'll look at them in place and then we'll look at their maintenance histories and the equipment on board, that kind of thing and lastly we'll look at the environment. that will include the air traffic environment and the physical environment as well as the weather. i don't -- just at a glance i live here in maryland. i don't think weather was an issue, but it will be examined and if there's anything anomalous, i can also request a weather study. that's basically it in a nutshell. honestly i just don't have any specific details about the accident itself, but i can answer a couple questions. >> reporter: do you feel pretty confident you'll find an
7:13 pm
answer to this since it's drawn out over a wide area and you do have witnesses? >> well, over decades people far smarter than i developed the processes and the methods that we use to develop the information to understand these events and i have found in my 18 years of doing this work that if i do the investigation the way i was taught, the information will reveal itself. so yes, i'm very confident. >> reporter: were both of these aircraft had been under the control of the aircraft traffic control tower in frederick? >> it's likely, yes. i'm not an air traffic control specialist. i'm an army aviator. i'm a pilot. i was a mechanic and a safety officer. >> you've been watching live as the press conference has gone on out of frederick, maryland, where three people were killed on a chopper where a chopper
7:14 pm
and airplane collided today. a couple new facts, one, of those three people killed they are not certain if all three were on the chopper. >> the other thing we learned is the two people who walked away from the crash on the plane have been released from the hospital. one of them was not injured. the other appeared to have a laceration, maybe a bruise of some sort. so that is the good news there. >> we will have all the information on

(vo) introducing the all-new subaru outback. love. it's what makes a subaru,a subaru. it is cbs sports final thursday night football game. we've got as a doozy with two of the most prolific quarterbacks in the nfc. let's get right to it, peyton manning, boy, what this guy has
7:18 pm
done in the last couple seasons, put into perspective how good this guy is. >> i think one of the things we do and we almost disrespect him in some ways, we compare him to tom brady and tom brady bottom line doesn't have peyton's numbers, but his record in january and february is superior and he's more of what people call a crunch time quarterback. nonetheless i think it's wrong because peyton manning belongs in a pantheon with only joe montana, dan marino, johnny unitas and tom brady, five of the great quarterbacks in nfl history. >> on the flip side you've got philip rivers tonight, 6-2 at denver all time. he could have a pretty good ballgame tonight, too. >> he, could but i'll also say the san diego running game, brandon oliver, they've rushed 140-yard the last two times they met denver, but they can slow them down. who knows? >> well, it's time to find out
