LONDON, Ky. (AP) -- A funeral is set this week for a former sheriff's deputy who was piloting a medical helicopter when it crashed in eastern Kentucky.

Eddie Sizemore and two crew members on the helicopter died in the crash on Thursday night in the parking lot of an elementary school in Clay County.

Funeral services for Sizemore will be Tuesday at First Baptist Church of London.

Sizemore had retired as a deputy in the Laurel County sheriff's office before becoming a pilot for Air Evac Lifeteam.

Along with Sizemore, flight paramedic Herman "Lee" Dobbs and flight nurse Jesse Jones were killed the crash. The team was on their way back to base after transporting a patient to a London hospital.

Federal officials are investigating the crash.
