BLOXOM, Va. (WAVY/AP) — Virginia State Police say four people are safe following a plane crash in Accomack County Monday.

State police were alerted about the crash just before 4 p.m. Monday.

Troopers arrived to find the wreckage of the aircraft near the intersection of Berry and Mason roads in Bloxom.

The E-2C Hawkeye went down in the vicinity of Wallops Island during a training flight, U.S Navy officials said.

Both roads are closed at the intersection due to the crash investigation. A detour is set up.

The county sheriff’s office says state troopers will be the lead agency at the scene.
