MOUNTAIN HOME (KATV) -

A Baxter County man was injured Thursday afternoon after he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into three sheriff's helicopters.

According to The Baxter Bulletin, an older man was driving a Lincoln Continental through an intersection near the Baxter County Sheriff's Office when he lost control, drove between the office and another building, then drove off a retaining wall where the three helicopters were parked.

The vehicle landed on its roof, badly damaging two of the choppers.

The driver had to be extricated from the car. He was injured and taken to a local hospital, but there is no word on his condition.
