The Clay County Sheriff said an Air Evac medical helicopter crashed in Manchester shortly after 11:00 p.m. Thursday, killing all three people on board.

The Sheriff told ABC 36 News at the crash scene that the helicopter was within an estimated 200-yards of a landing pad when it went down.

The Sheriff said it does not appear that there were any patients on board the chopper.  He said the three victims appeared to all be members of the flight crew.

No names have been released.
