(Reuters) - A medical helicopter crashed late on Thursday in Oklahoma, the Federal Aviation Administration said, but there was no immediate word on any casualties.

The aircraft, registered to EagleMed LLC, was believed to be carrying three employees when it went down around 11:25 p.m. local time near Eufala, FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford said in an emailed statement.

Lunsford could not comment on the condition of those on board. City and county authorities also could not provide any details.

FAA investigators headed to the site and the National Transportation Safety Board would lead the investigation, Lunsford said.
