CAPE FAIR, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say a pilot was critically injured during a helicopter crash in southwestern Missouri’s Stone County.

Sheriff Doug Rader tells KYTV (https://bit.ly/1PwSz9y) that 69-year-old John Read was flown to an unspecified Springfield hospital after the crash about 5:30 p.m. Friday roughly 10 miles southeast of Cape Fair.

Read’s medical status and the cause of the crash were not immediately clear Saturday.

Read is Stone County’s former surveyor.
