A helicopter crashed in the Snake River in Idaho but two occupants were able to leave the scene in a vehicle.

Crews responded to reports of a helicopter crash near Ten Mile Canyon south of Lewiston at about 10:40 p.m. Saturday.

The Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office says witnesses told dispatchers two males got out of the helicopter, made it to shore and left the area in a vehicle.

A dive team is being deployed Sunday to inspect the helicopter. No information has been released on the cause of the crash.
