ST. LOUIS (AP) — A medical helicopter pilot killed in a crash near St. louis University Hospital has been identified.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Fire Captain Garon Mosby said the pilot was 52-year-old Ronald Scott Rector of Linn. He was alone in the Eurocopter EC-130 when it went down Friday night during a flight to the hospital to pick up a crew.

Mosby said the cause of the crash was not known, but that the helicopter had just left the ARCH Air Medical Services base.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators were at the scene of the crash on Saturday morning. Air Methods spokeswoman Christina Brodsly said in a written statement that the company, which operates ARCH Air Medical Services, was cooperating with investigators.
