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.

Neighborhood resident Stan Klaybor says the aircraft clipped the top of one house, heavily damaged a second house, and came to rest against a third house.
