LONDON (AP) _ London police say a helicopter has crashed during a rush hour in central London after apparently hitting a construction crane on top of a building.
"It is too early at this stage to confirm any casualties," Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
A photo shown on Sky News showed wreckage burning in a street, and a large plume of black smoke was seen rising in the area.
London Fire Brigade said it was called at 8 a.m. to a report of a crash on Wandsworth Road on the south bank of the Thames.
