BUFFALO An out-of-commission Mercy Flight helicopter being transported on a flatbed truck was part of an accident on Friday morning on the state Thruway (I-90), between the Pembroke and Batavia exits.
Mercy Flight officials said the helicopter has not been used since 2011 and was on its way to Canandaigua to be painted, then shipped to an Australian firefighting company.
The trip for the helicopter started in Buffalo, and troopers said icy conditions were to blame for the accident. No injuries were reported.
