MANCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — A medical helicopter crashed in eastern Kentucky, killing all three crewmembers aboard.

A statement from the helicopter's company, Air Evac Lifeteam, says it was on its way back to base around 11:16 p.m. Thursday when the accident happened in Clay County.

The company identified the crewmembers as pilot Eddie Sizemore, flight paramedic Herman "Lee" Dobbs and flight nurse Jesse Jones. They were on their back to base after transporting a patient to a hospital in London, Ky.

In the statement, Air Evac Lifeteam President and CEO Seth Myers says they're devastated by the loss of the crew.

The cause of the accident isn't known and Air Evac Lifeteam says officials with the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board have been notified and will begin investigating.
