Texas Helicopter Crash Outside Houston Kills Two

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 11-Sep-2012

A helicopter accident outside Houston left two people dead on Monday afternoon, after the aircraft crashed and exploded upon impact, officials with the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The victims of the Houston helicopter crash were identified as 40-year-old Christopher Yeager, a resident of Houston, and 60-year-old Joyce Ates, a resident of Midwest City, Oklahoma.

Although officials are still investigating the downed helicopter, authorities said the accident occurred at a steel yard in Harris County.

Scene and crash examinations are still underway as officials look to determine what may have caused the helicopter crash outside Houston.

Officials told the Associated Press that the aircraft was owned and operated by Helicopter Services Incorporated and appeared to have been arriving to the Houston region from Baytown.

In such a vast region, surrounded by hundreds of thousands of troops and military members, helicopters are common in Texas. But despite the common aspect of their existence, proper maintenance and training regarding the use of the air craft is vital to protecting those flying as well as people on the ground.
