The Robinson R22, two seater, went down, into some trees before striking a stop sign on Malinda Lane. It then skidded about 200 feet. The pilot and copilot were unharmed.
The crash happened at about 845am Thursday just west of US1. The FAA was at the scene to investigate, with a preliminary report to be out by next week.
A spokes person from the Titusville fire department reports that one of the pilots on board may have cut the fuel switch. One of the pilots on board may have accidentally hit a switch that cut fuel to the engines. That caused a loss of power.
The helicopter was headed to Dunn Airport.
