Sheriff says 3 dead in helicopter crash in western Colorado; witnesses say it hit power line

DENVER — Authorities say a helicopter has crashed in western Colorado, killing all three people aboard.

Garfield County Sheriff’s Deputy Ward Stowe says his office cannot immediately release the names of those killed in Monday’s crash near Silt. He says witnesses who saw the crash believe the helicopter was carrying a crew inspecting power lines, and that the helicopter snagged a line.

Stowe says the helicopter bore no identifying marks, so it wasn’t immediately clear who owned it or who might have been operating it.
