Indiana Air Ambulance Crash Lawsuit Against Bell Helicopter Settled

Danville, IN – The lawsuit on behalf of Sandra Pearson, an Indiana flight nurse who was one of three people killed in a medical air ambulance helicopter crash has been settled, and representatives of the family stated that the settlement will be deposited into a trust fund for the children of 38-year-old flight nurse from Avon.

Pearson died in August 2008 along with pilot Roger Warren and Wade Weston, the paramedic and base manager when the Bell 206 Longranger they were riding in crashed into a field about 40 miles southeast of Indianapolis, Indiana.

An investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board uncovered that the main rotor blade broke apart soon after helicopter lifted off.

A Hendricks County probate judge approved the settlement with defendant Bell Helicopter Textron on Wednesday. Attorneys with Bell Helicopter Textron declined to comment on the case and settlement.
