ST. LOUIS - A Missouri State Highway Patrol pilot has died in the crash of a helicopter he was flying in suburban St. Louis.
The patrol says 47-year-old Sgt. Joseph Schuengel was alone in the helicopter when it went down around 11 a.m. Friday in a subdivision in the Clarkson Valley area. Patrol spokesman Al Nothum says the cause is being investigated.
The helicopter landed on a street about 100 feet from a house. The patrol says there were no injuries or structural damage on the ground.
Schuengel was a 17-year Highway Patrol veteran. Nothum says he was heading to the Spirit of St. Louis Airport in Chesterfield after a routine patrol in Jefferson County when the crash occurred.
