SOUTH BEND, Ind. — A large crane is in place in a South Bend neighborhood where a private jet crashed as authorities prepare to remove the aircraft's fuselage from the scene.


National Transportation Safety Board investigator Todd Fox says authorities hope to have the fuselage removed Tuesday. He told reporters Monday that investigators' immediate focus is getting the fuselage moved to a hangar for further investigation.

The plane originating from Tulsa, Okla., crashed into three homes Sunday, killing former Oklahoma quarterback Steve Davis and his friend, Wes Caves. Davis and Caves were the jet's flight crew.

Passenger Jim Rodgers remains in serious condition, while fellow passenger Christopher Evans remains in fair condition at a South Bend hospital.

A woman who lives in one of the homes struck, Diana McKeown, remains in fair condition.
