Officer Amberg and Officer Ilnicki were flying their helicopter eastbound from the area above Dodger Stadium heading due east to investigate a traffic jam on the 110 Fwy east of the stadium. At the same time a news helicopter was flying due north just south of the stadium along the 110 Fwy to investigate the same traffic jam as the Police helicopter. The two helicopters were on a 45 degree merge angle when they collided near Dodger Stadium. Both Officers were killed along with two pilots in the news helicopter in the accident.
