I heard this accident from over a quarter mile away, it started with screeching brakes followed by multiple impacts as if it bounced off of multiple objects or rolled over. I really hope the individual turns out alright, they had to Lifestar him to the hospital.

I heard this call go out. Unconsious, bleeding from the head and probable extrication. Quite a severe accident for Jayhawk Blvd.

We heard the tires and crashing sounds from quite far away as well. The tire screeches lasted a full 2-3 seconds, he must have been traveling fast to be able to hit the brakes for that long of a time. Good thoughts to him and his family. Where did the helicopter land?

I didn't see exactly where the chopper landed, but somewhere between Memorial Stadium and Spencer Art Museum. It went east over the parking garage before jogging to the north past the Oread toward LMH. Couldn't have been more than 100-150 feet above ground.

I hope that LJW can continue to monitor the situation and provide any updates as they become available.
