No injuries reported in helicopter crash

No one was injured in a helicopter crash north of Rock Springs, Wyoming early Tuesday evening. At the scene, Sheriff Rich Haskell said Undersheriff Craig Jackson was on Yellowstone Road about 3 miles north of the city when he saw a helicopter circling west of the roadway around 6 p.m. He then observed the helicopter drop straight to the ground from a relatively low altitude.  Jackson investigated and found the craft to be a Guardian Flight helicopter with five people aboard, none of whom were patients. None were injured in the crash. Haskell said federal officials are being notified and will be in charge of the investigation. He said he planned on releasing additional information on Wednesday.

  1. Which is a good thing as the people onboard were lucky to escape unscathed. This news triggered on how safe these choppers for use.

  2. More than the pilot, I think the aerospace hardware engineer should be commended for making sure there were enough ground checks made before that chopper took off.

  3. It was good news that no one injured in the helicopter crash. Those people in this helicopter is very blessed.
