(AP) A coroner in Indiana is saying people were killed when a small plane crashed in a northern Indiana neighborhood.


Deputy St. Joseph County Coroner Michael O'Connell said, "Fatalities have been confirmed at the scene." He would not say how many people are dead.


Authorities say the private jet was experiencing mechanical trouble when it crashed in a neighborhood near the South Bend Regional Airport on Sunday. It hit three homes, becoming lodged in one of them.


Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Roland Herwig says 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.
