A military helicopter crashed on a southern Maryland golf course on Monday, injuring at least one member of the crew, an official told Fox News.

A U.S. Army UH-60 Blackhawk from Ft. Belvoir, Virginia with three crew members on board crashed around 1:50 p.m. in the near Leonardtown, Ft. Belvoir spokesman Jimmie Cummings said.

One of the crew members was taken by helicopter to a hospital, but Cummings would not describe his injuries. The other two members of the crew were in good condition, Cummings said. Two medevac helicopters were initially sent to the scene to help.

Kevin Bowen, who works in the pro shop of the Breton Bay Golf and Country Club in Leonardtown, said he saw the helicopter “flying kind of low” and then “saw the spiders,” before it went between the third and fourth holes of the golf course.

Fox News’ Lucas Tomlinson and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
