Five people walked away with only minor injuries after a helicopter crash in the town of Crawford.

It happened Saturday on Youngblood Road, near Winding Hills County Park.

According to witnesses, shortly after the helicopter took off, it made a beeline back and eventually crashed.

Neighbors say it’s typical for the owner to fly on the weekends.

“I”ve seen it land before but it was going too fast,” said neighbor Jason Kirk. “I don’t know what happened then I heard an explosion.”

Crawford police say all five people injured were passengers on the helicopter.
