Plane Crash in South Bend Kills 2 and Injures Several
Several people have been injured and at least two were killed in a private twin-jet crash in South Bend, IN. The plane hit the ground and crashed into at least three homes, causing not only injury and death, but also extensive damage to the homes that will take a long time to clean up and repair.
The investigations are ongoing and the entire area has been evacuated by bus. Officials say it will take at least four days to comb through all of the crash site and search for any other injured people and evidence related to the cause of the crash.
The pilots on the plane have yet to be identified, but the plane was registered to 7700 Enterprises of Montana LLC. based out of Helena, Montana.
The crash caused a major fuel leak, which was the main reason the remainder of the homes in the area were evacuated. Residents who were displaced and did not have another place to go were taken to Clay United Methodist Church in South Bend.
In a report by the Federal Aviation Administration, the unidentified pilot radioed for help when he was experiencing technical problems. The pilot was to make a landing attempt around 4 pm at the 9R-27L runway, but after a failed attempt, it crashed during a fly-around.
