Posted: Updated:

Three people were killed after a helicopter crashed into power lines in San Bernardino County.

The crash occurred just after 8:30 a.m. Saturday, after the vintage Piasecki PV-18 took off from the Adelanto airport.

The three people on board were heading for Riverside.

So far, their identities have not been released, but Federal Aviation Administration officials show the helicopter was registered to Joseph William Pike, of Victorville.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
