Report looks at fuel system in helicopter crash

HONOLULU (AP) - A report by the National Transportation Safety Board says an incorrectly installed fuel system part may have contributed to a helicopter crash in Honolulu last year.

The Robinson R22 Beta helicopter operated by Mauna Loa Helicopters lost power and made a hard landing on May 8, 2013, on Fort Street.

The helicopter hit an unoccupied car. No serious injuries were reported.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the report focused on an incorrect installation of a spring in the fuel system.

The NTSB has not released a probable cause report on the crash.
