Two people were killed in a helicopter crash Friday in a mountainous area of north-central Utah, authorities said.
The helicopter went down north of Alpine, the Utah County Sheriff’s Office said. Both people aboard were killed. Their names have not been released.
Authorities began searching Friday afternoon after a relative of someone on the helicopter said it was late.
Searchers found the wreckage shortly before 6:30 p.m. MT, the sheriff’s office said. “We don’t know what happened there,” Sgt. Spencer Cannon said. “There was some heavy weather in this area earlier today. Whether that played a role in the crash today, we don’t know.”
