A medical plane flying to Williston, North Dakota to assist in a patient transport went down prior to arrival late Sunday night, killing all three on board.

The release said the National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration would investigate the incident.

"It is a sad day here for both of our organizations," CHI St. Alexius Health Bismarck President Kurt Schley and  Bismarck Air Medical and Metro Area Ambulance Operations Chief Dan Schaefer said in a joint statement.

"We are grieving for the family members of those who were on board."


The names of those killed have not yet been released pending notification of family members.

Fargo TV station WDAY reported Morton County spokeswoman Maxine Herr said the crash site is located about 15 to 20 miles northwest of Mandan.
