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.
