Helicopter Crash Near Mansfield

An investigation is now underway after a helicopter crashed in Piatt County yesterday.

It happened just before noon Tuesday, a few miles north of Mansfield.

Right now, it's still unclear how the chopper ended up in the soybean field.

An Ameren official on the scene said the helicopter, a crop duster, may have hit a power line while working.

Sheriff's deputies are not releasing much information yet, but did say the pilot's family was on the scene as crews try to piece together the events that contributed to the crash.
