J(EFFERSON COUNTY) - A man was seriously injured early Friday when the helicopter he was flying crashed into a southern Indiana soybean field.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department said the crash happened about 7:40 a.m. when the pilot, Kevin Rossan, 35, of Michigan, was flying a helicopter crop duster spraying chemicals on a field east of State Road 3, near Deputy, about 35 miles north of Louisville, Ky.

Rossan was rushed to King's Daughters' Hospital in Madison with serious injuries.

The cause of the crash is under investigation by the NTSB, but investigators think winds tipped its blades into the ground.

Rossan was the only person on the aircraft, which was owned by a Pennsylvania company.
