The two fatalities were in the helicopter, the pilot and photographer. Neither worked for the station, but for the company that leased them the chopper. The chopper wasn't the normal one that the station used, but a loaner while their normal one was in the shop.

The helicopter that crashed was not the regular KOMO helicopter but a temporary replacement for one that's in the shop for an upgrade.

Reports are that the injured motorist's condition has been upgraded.

Harborview Medical Center reports Richard Newman has been upgraded from critical to serious condition.
