Two people injured in helicopter crash near Lake Wohlford

Posted: Updated:
Authorities said two people were seriously injured in a helicopter crash in a remote part of the San Pasqual Valley.

The Robinson R-44 went down around 2:40 p.m. at Rancho Guejito, east of Lake Wohlford between Valley Center and Ramona, said Ian Gregor of the Federal Aviation Administration.

Gregor said the four-seater chopper went down in rugged terrain, and a dispatcher with Cal Fire said it took an hour to find the wreckage.

Two people in the helicopter were airlifted to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, she said.

The aircraft is registered to Gillian Blue GP, a corporation based in Dallas, Gregor said.

The craft suffered substantial damage, he said.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.
