SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Lots stand empty where two houses were destroyed a year ago in the deadly crash of a private plane into a neighborhood near South Bend's airport.
The March 17, 2013, crash killed former University of Oklahoma quarterback Steve Davis and Tulsa, Okla., businessman Wes Caves, who were the pilots.
Another house damaged in the crash has been rebuilt, but the aftermath is now tied up in a lawsuit involving two injured plane passengers and the homeowners' insurance companies against the manufacturer and owners of the plane.
A preliminary National Transportation Safety Board report pointed to engine trouble. Agency spokesman Terry Williams tells the South Bend Tribune a final report should be released soon.
Neighborhood resident Kelly Reygaert tells WSBT-TV the empty lots are a constant reminder of the crash.
