RULO –No injuries were reported after a small helicopter crashed last night in extreme southeast Nebraska.

Shortly after 9:00 p.m., Richardson County sheriff’s deputies and state troopers responded to the scene just south of Rulo and one mile north of the Kansas border near the White Cloud Casino.

The helicopter could be seen laying on its side with debris scattered throughout a soybean field. The scene was secured by law enforcement as they awaited further instructions from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The identity of the pilot was not released by authorities pending the investigation.
