NEWKIRK — Authorities on Friday released the names of three crew members killed when a medical helicopter flying to pick up a patient crashed into the side of a New Mexico hilltop.
The helicopter was flying from Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe to Trigg Memorial Hospital in Tucumcari when it disappeared from radar at 2:48 a.m. Thursday.
It went down near Newkirk along Interstate 40 about 135 miles east of Albuquerque and about 30 miles from Tucumcari and burst into flames, killing all three aboard.
