SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The fuselage of a private jet that struck three Indiana houses, killing two people and injuring three others, has been removed from a house and awaits investigation by authorities who've yet to determine a cause.

All South Bend residents evacuated following Sunday's crash, except for the three homes that were struck, were allowed to return Tuesday.

The private jet crashed near the South Bend Regional Airport, killing two men aboard, including former Oklahoma University quarterback Steve Davis. Davis led Oklahoma to back-to-back national championships in the 1970s.

It wasn't immediately clear who was at the controls when the plane crashed.

Two passengers and a woman residing in one of the damaged homes remain hospitalized.

National Transportation Safety Board statistics show 200 planes crashed into residential areas between 2003 and 2008.
