Update On Blimp Crash Investigation
Investigators cleared a Washington County farmer who complained about an advertising blimp scaring his cows and “sarcastically” threatened to shoot it down hours before the blimp crashed during the US Open in Erin Hills last week. After the blimp crashed the man was located and interviewed. There was no evidence he was connected to it. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the cause of the crash. The pilot is recovering from burns and other injuries.
