SOUTH BEND, Ind. - A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman says two of four people aboard a jet that crashed in northern Indiana have died.
Authorities say the private jet was apparently experiencing mechanical trouble when it crashed in a South Bend neighborhood. It struck three homes, becoming lodged in one of them.
The Beechcraft Premier I twin-jet had left Tulsa, Okla.'s Riverside Airport and crashed near South Bend Regional Airport.
It's still not clear if anyone on the ground was killed.
A South Bend Memorial Hospital spokeswoman says three people injured when the plane crashed were being treated there; one is in serious condition and two are in fair condition. She did not know if they were on the plane or the ground.
The plane was registered to 7700 Enterprises of Montana LLC in Helena, Mont. The company is owned by Wes Caves and does business as DigiCut Systems in Tulsa, Okla. It makes window film and paint overlay for automobiles.
