Two Killed After Plane Crashes Into South Bend Home

Last updated on Monday, March 18, 2013

(SOUTH BEND) - A small plane crashed into three homes in South Bend Sunday afternoon, injuring a number of people and killing two others.

The crash happened southeast of the South Bend Regional Airport.

WSBT-TV reports there were four people on the plane - two were killed. At least three people were taken to local hospitals. Two patients are in fair condition and one is in serious condition.

Authorities worked to shut off gas in the neighborhood as jet fuel leaked in the area.

The neighborhood was evacuated until at least Monday morning.

WSBT reporters at the scene Sunday say the jet hit one home, damaged a second, and landed on a third. The jet was reported out of Tulsa, OK.

The pilot reported an electrical problem on approach, according to the FAA. The plane stalled on its final approach and crashed.
