Two people killed when jet crashes in Indiana neighborhood

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - The Federal Aviation Administration says two of four people aboard a jet that crashed in a northern Indiana neighborhood have died.

Authorities say the private jet was apparently experiencing mechanical trouble when it crashed in South Bend. It struck three homes, becoming lodged in one of them.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Roland Herwig in Oklahoma City says two people on the plane were killed. A total of four people were aboard.

The Beechcraft Premier I twin-jet had left Tulsa, Okla.'s Riverside Airport.

Part of the neighborhood southwest of the airport was evacuated because of concerns about jet fuel.
