Authorities say a medical helicopter has crashed in Oklahoma City, killing two people and injuring a third. The Oklahoma City Fire Department tells the Oklahoman that the crash happened this morning near the St. Ann Nursing Home in northwest Oklahoma City. A large storm system has blanketed much of the Midwest and Plains in snow, but it wasn't immediately clear if authorities believe weather played a role in the crash. (More helicopter crash stories.)
