Report still not out on helicopter crash near La Crosse

Posted:

Madison, Wis. (AP) -- It's been 2 years since 3 people died in the crash of a UW Hospital helicopter ambulance near La Crosse, and the final report of the investigation still isn't out.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports Sunday that the final report from the National Transportation Safety Board is expected to give a probable cause for the crash.

The crash on may 10, 2008, killed Dr. Darren Bean, nurse Mark Coyne and pilot Steve Lipperer.

NTSB spokesman Keith Holloway says there's no date set when the final report will be available, but it could be as soon as this summer.

Although there's no final report, other NTSB records suggest foggy conditions contributed to the crash.
