    Air ambulance crashed overnight in Texas-Three people died

    Three people are dead after an air ambulance crashed overnight in Texas just south of the airport in Amarillo.
    Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Cindy Barkley says the small plane went down about 12.30am Saturday in an industrial section of the city between Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport and Interstate 40. 
    Rico Aviation, an air ambulance service based in Amarillo, issued a statement saying three of its crew members died.
    It wrote on Facebook: 'Rico Aviation regrets to confirm the loss of three crew members last night. 
    'We are devastated by this tragedy and are mourning the loss of our team members. 
    'The families have been notified and they are in our hearts and prayers. We appreciate prayers for our fallen teammates and their families.'

    It wasn't clear whether the plane had any other people on board and whether it was en route or returning from a medical transport.
    A company employee who answered the phone Saturday declined comment.
    A message left with Amarillo police was not immediately returned.
