WSIC News Partner Fox 46 quotes the report saying the pilot felt a shudder in the control and at the same time experienced the craft go right and start to spin. The pilot lowered the nose trying to increase forward motion but the rate of spin increased.

The helicopter clipped a house during the crash. No one inside the residence was injured, although the two people in the helicopter were taken to the hospital.
