Helicopter crashes in central Ohio; 1 person hurt


DELAWARE, Ohio  — A sheriff’s spokeswoman says a helicopter crashed in a rural area of central Ohio, injuring at least one of two people aboard the aircraft.

Delaware County sheriff’s spokeswoman Tracy Whited says the crash happened today in the early afternoon near the Union County line. Law enforcement and emergency agencies from both counties were responding to the scene.

Whited says one person was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t believed to be life-threatening.

Whited said she wasn’t sure exactly where the helicopter crashed but that the scene was in a region of rural farmland.

She said she was awaiting more details about what happened and about who owns the helicopter.
