Bell 206L-1 LongRanger, Greensburg, Ind., Aug. 31, 2008–Witnesses saw “components separate from” the EMS LongRanger before it crashed and was consumed by fire. All three people on board–the pilot, a flight nurse and a paramedic–were killed. The helicopter, operated by Air Evac EMS, was transporting the crew from a fund-raising event to home base in Rushville, Ind. The helicopter had cleared high-tension wires just before the crash and investigation of the wires showed no damage that could be attributed to the helicopter.
