SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — The Army has identified a soldier killed in a helicopter accident at a Georgia airfield as a 31-year-old special operations helicopter platoon leader.

The Army Special Operations Command says that Capt. Clayton O. Carpenter of Brooklyn, N.Y., died late Wednesday at the end of a training flight at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah. He was aboard an MH-60 Black Hawk helicopter that slammed into the ground while landing. The Army is investigating what went wrong.

Two crew members were injured. Army Maj. Allen Hill, a spokesman for the unit, said Saturday both are expected to make full recoveries.

All were members of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, which flies helicopters behind enemy lines under cover of darkness. Based at Fort Campbell, Ky., the unit has a battalion in Savannah.

ATLANTA (AP) - A Wendy's employee who tucked a partially smoked blunt in a customer's cheeseburger has been fired and charged with marijuana possession.

Police in the city of Lovejoy, Ga., about 25 miles south of downtown Atlanta, say a customer drove home with her food Nov. 1, took a bite out of the burger and noticed a strange smell wafting from it. Police say the woman pulled the bun off and saw a partially smoked blunt inside. A blunt is marijuana rolled into a hollowed-out cigar.

In an incident report released Thursday, police say 32-year-old Amy Elizabeth Seiber admitted that the marijuana was hers.

Clayton County court officials did not know if Seiber has an attorney. A telephone number listed for her was out of service.

Authorities say 38-year-old Melvin Gregory moved to the area from Conyers, Ga., to live with his girlfriend. After those two got into an altercation that involved Mays and two other defendants, Gregory's body was found in August 2011 on the side of a road by horseback riders near Cahokia.

5 dead after small jet crashes in eastern GA

THOMSON, Ga. (AP) — Five people were killed and two injured when a small jet crashed off the end of a runway in eastern Georgia, an official confirmed early Thursday.

Thomson-McDuffie County Sheriff Logan Marshall said the jet crashed after 8 p.m. Wednesday. He said the two survivors were taken to area hospitals but did not have information on their conditions. He said the identities of those killed were being withheld pending notification of family members.

The Hawker Beechcraft 390/Premier I en route from Nashville, Tenn., crashed around 8:30 p.m. at the Thomson-McDuffie County Airport, about 30 miles west of Augusta, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said in an email.

Seven people were aboard, she told The Associated Press in the email. She added that she had no immediate details about a possible cause.

The Augusta Chronicle (http://bit.ly/WbvMGa) cited Assistant County Fire Chief Stephen Sewell as saying there were at least two survivors identified as a pilot and a passenger. But he provided no additional information about those aboard in that account.

The newspaper said a brush fire flared near the crash scene, quoting witnesses who reported local power outages that prompted a utility to send workers to the site. A photograph posted on the newspaper's online site showed ambulances with lights flashing.

The plane was on a flight from John Tune Airport in Nashville, Tenn., to the Thomson-McDuffie airport, Bergen said in her email, adding the aircraft is registered to a company based in Wilmington, Del.
