Helicopter Crash – Tragic Loss

Our hearts go out to the families of flight nurses Karen Hollis and Jim Dillow and pilot Andy Olesen of REACT.  These good people were killed when their medical helicopter crashed December 10, 2012 near Rochelle, Illinois.  I had the pleasure of meeting Nurse Hollis in 2011.  She was one of the flight nurses who responded to a motorcycle crash near Rockton, Illinois.  I represent the rider who suffered a severe head injury when her HJC motorcycle helmet failed during the crash.  I took Nurse Hollis’s deposition and found her to be very intelligent, professional and compassionate.  Her death is a huge loss not only for her family, but for the entire community.
