SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP): An attorney for an Oklahoma man says he's unlikely to recover from serious brain injuries he suffered when a private plane crashed into homes near a northern Indiana airport seven months ago.
Jim Rodgers of Tulsa, Okla., and his son-in-law Chris Evans survived the March crash of the jet coming in for an emergency landing at South Bend Regional Airport. The crash killed former University of Oklahoma quarterback Steve Davis and Tulsa businessman Wes Caves, who were flying the plane.
Attorney Fred Stoops says Rodgers is bedridden and has trouble speaking. Stoops says Evans is in better shape but has orthopedic injuries.
Stoops says a lawsuit filed by the families is on hold until the National Transportation Safety Board completes its investigation.
