If you recall a few days ago we reported that the Federal Aviation Administration announced in their preliminary report that the Baton Rouge Police Dept. helicopter that crashed may have hit trees prior to going down in a cane field.

The FAA's initial report stated that the helicopter's tail rotor struck a tree and crashed inverted in a field.

Since that initial report was released, some changes or updates have come out of this investigation.

The FAA has now said that the aircraft “crashed under unknown circumstances.”

Sadly, two BRPD officers perished in this terrible accident, Cpl. Scotty Canezaro and Sgt. David Poirrier, 47.

The investigation into this crash continues as investigators continue to go through the wreckage from the crash site, which has now been removed from the field where the helicopter went down.

When more updates are announced in regard to this accident, we'll provide them here.

Our thoughts are with the families of these two BRPD officers and the entire police force in Baton Rouge.


LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
