A helicopter has crashed on a bustling Spanish motorway.
The incident occurred on the M40 motorway near Madrid not long after takeoff, apparently destabilized by strong winds.
First reports indicate injuries to the two occupants of the helicopter, although their nationalities remain unknown.
Despite the helicopter’s crash on the busy motorway, there are currently no other reports of casualties. To allow emergency services to work at the scene, traffic has been brought to a standstill in both directions. The accident has been attributed to powerful winds believed to have destabilized the helicopter.
