Two people have been killed after a KOMO news helicopter crashed on top of at least three vehicles outside Seattle Center Tuesday morning and caught fire. A third person was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
The crash happened in the 400 block of Broad Street next to Fisher Plaza, which is home to KOMO.
Witnesses said the helicopter was trying to land when it tumbled to the ground.
A Seattle Fire Department spokesman said two people on board the helicopter were killed at the scene. A 37-year-old man has been taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition. That man was in one of the cars, but managed to pull himself out.
Investigators from the FAA and the NTSB will investigate.
Drivers are being told to avoid the area. The investigation was expected to last several hours.
