Emergency personal remained on the scene Sunday night, and the plane was still stuck in one of the homes.

Among those injured, two are in fair condition and one is in serious condition, according to Maggie Scroope, spokeswoman at Memorial Hospital of South Bend, where the injured are being treated.

The plane's pilot radioed for help after experiencing problems with the technical equipment, CNN affiliate WNDU reported, adding that a landing attempt failed.

The plane departed from Tulsa, Oklahoma, and was inbound to South Bend Regional Airport, WNDU said.
