OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Authorities say a pilot killed last week when a medical helicopter crashed in Oklahoma City died from injuries he sustained in the crash.

Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office spokeswoman Amy Elliott said Monday that pilot Mark Montgomery died from multiple blunt force trauma and thermal injuries. The manner of death was listed as accidental.

The office has not released the cause and manner of death for flight nurse Chris Denning, who was also killed in the crash.

A third passenger in the helicopter, paramedic Billy Wynne, remained hospitalized Monday in critical condition at Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

The helicopter had just taken off from Integris-Baptist Medical Center in Oklahoma City and was headed to pick up a patient in Watonga when it crashed near a nursing home.
