Flight Officer Barry Wood was killed when the helicopter he was piloting crashed during a chase of a stolen vehicle.

Prior to the crash the observation officer had radioed to dispatch that there was a fire onboard the Schweizer 300C helicopter. The helicopter crashed at the intersection of Pratt Street and Poppleton Street, near the entrance to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum, as Officer Woods attempted to locate a safe location to land. The observation officer was pulled from the wreckage immediately and Officer Wood was freed by rescue workers.

He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries during surgery.

Officer Wood was a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War and had served with the Baltimore Police Department for 27 years. He is survived by his wife.
