A helicopter crash was reported on Saturday near Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, but no one was seriously injured, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The helicopter was patrolling at low altitude around a power line when it crashed on a train track a mile north of the airport, the agency said.

The crew of the helicopter suffered minor injuries and no one else was hurt, according to the FAA.

The off-site incident had no immediate impact on airline operations, the airport said on Twitter.

Amtrak also said on Twitter that the crash occurred near the BWI Amtrak station, and that it would have no estimate about the length of any delays in service until officials finished an investigation.

Representatives for Amtrak and the Anne Arundel County Police Department could not immediately be reached for comment.
