A medical helicopter dropped off a patient in La Crosse and then crashed about three miles from the city's airport shortly after beginning its return flight to Madison, killing the surgeon, nurse and pilot on board, officials said.

The University of Wisconsin Hospital Med Flight crew departed late Saturday, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The wreckage was found early Sunday, and preliminary reports indicate the helicopter may have struck a hill or trees, an official said.
