A medical helicopter made a crash landing Friday night in Pottsville, Schuylkill County, Pa. injuring three people on board. The FAA says the Medevac helicopter was on its way to an automobile accident in Wayne Township when it apparently lost power shortly after taking off from the Pottsville Muzzuca helipad around 9 p.m.

The helicopter crashed into the parking lot of a truck depot in the 1400 block of Laurel Boulevard.

Officials say the pilot and two other people on board suffered minor injuries.

The helicopter is affiliated with Lehigh Valley Medical Center.
