NTSB to investigate why corporate jet slammed into row of homes in South Bend, Indiana – Jim Spellman reports

FROM CNN WIRES:

A corporate jet, sheared in half - its nose poking through the front window of a shattered home.

Such was the scene in a South Bend, Indiana, neighborhood Sunday when a Hawker Beechcraft 390 slammed into a row of single-story homes, damaging three.

Two of the four people aboard the plane died on impact. The other two were injured, as was one person on the ground, Assistant Fire Chief John Corthier said late Sunday.

The plane was attempting to circle back around to the city's regional airport after a failed landing attempt when it crashed along Iowa Street.

Moments earlier, the plane's pilot had radioed for help, CNN affiliate WNDU-TV reported.

CNN's Jim Spellman reports on the latest, including details on the NTSB's investigation, on "Early Start" this morning.
