ONE HURT IN HELICOPTER CRASH ON SOUTH U.S. HIGHWAY 2872018-05-10
One person was hurt when a private helicopter crashed in Navarro County Thursday evening.

The Texas Department of Public Safety reported that troopers were called to the crash about 6 pm Thursday near South U.S. Highway 287 between FM 309 and SECR 3320.

Preliminary information from DPS says the two seat helicopter was on approach to land at a private facility when the aircraft apparently lost power, causing the pilot to auto-rotate and land in a wooded area.

First responders at the scene report the pilot of the helicopter was taken by air ambulance for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The FAA will investigate the crash.
