Crystal River, Florida - A Citrus County Sheriff's helicopter made a hard landing on US 19 Tuesday night.

It happened around 11 p.m. while the chopper was on patrol in Crystal River.

Deputies on the scene say the chopper lost power, forcing the pilot to make a hard landing in the northbound lanes of US 19, just south of the Crystal River Airport.

We're told there were no injuries.

Crews took the helicopter blades off and towed it off, so investigators can figure out what caused the power loss.
