WEST LIBERTY, Ohio (WTVN) -- A helicopter crashed in Logan County, sending one person to the hospital.
The crash happened off County Road 190 near Bellefontaine shortly before 5 p.m.
Investigators say the pilot, Lou Boucher, 50, of Manchester, New Hampshire, was cutting trees using ten 26-inch blades suspended from a 30-foot extension beneath the chopper. Boucher flies for a South Carolina-based company.
Boucher was working to help clear the area near a railroad track to make room for a new 20-mile bike path from Bellefontaine to Urbana when the crash happened.
Emergency crews flew Boucher to Grant Medical Center where he's listed in serious condition.
