And the names of the victims in the fatal twin-engine jet crash in South Bend have been released. 60-year-old Steve Davis, a former, well-known, Oklahoma University football star, and 58-year-old Wes Caves, of Tulsa, Oklahoma were killed in the crash.
Investigators say the small jet was coming from Tulsa, Oklahoma to the South Bend Airport. The aircraft was cleared to land, actually touched down but then went back up before crashing into three homes in a nearby neighborhood.
Two other people on board were hospitalized along with a person on the ground.
A private jet apparently experiencing mechanical trouble crashed Sunday in a South Bend neighborhood, hitting three homes.
Four people were on board. Two were killed. One person on the ground was injured.
South Bend Assistant Fire Chief John Corthier said everyone connected with the damaged homes had been accounted for and there were no known missing people.
Electricity was cut off to part of the neighborhood and there was a mandatory evacuation because of the jet fuel leak.
National Transportation Safety Board Investigator Andrew Todd Fox says he has a team from around the country helping with the ongoing investigation.
