Helicopter Crashes In Northern Michigan, Killing 2

CALEDONIA TWP. (AP) – Michigan State Police say a helicopter has crashed in the northern Lower Peninsula, killing both people aboard. State police say wreckage from the helicopter was found Monday morning in a remote part of Alcona County.

The site is in a wooded section of private land in Caledonia Township, about 85 miles north of Bay City.

State police say family members on Monday reported that the privately owned helicopter that was expected to fly to the Alpena area on Friday didn’t arrive as expected.

Troopers say the aircraft was a Robinson R-44 registered to a company in the Detroit suburb of Fraser.

State police say they’re waiting to notify relatives before releasing the name of the pilot and passenger who died in the crash.
