MIDDLESBORO, Ky. (AP) -- Officials in eastern Kentucky have passed a resolution to honor a flight nurse killed in a helicopter crash earlier this year.

Bell County Fiscal Court voted to rename a portion of Kentucky 190 as the Jesse Lee Jones Memorial Highway. Jones grew up in the area and graduated from Bell County High School in 2003.

Jones, who was 28, and two others died in June when the medical helicopter they were in crashed near Manchester. The team was on their way back to base after transporting a patient to a London hospital.

Federal officials are investigating the crash.
