SOUTH BEND, Ind. — A hospital has upgraded to fair the medical condition of a passenger on a private jet that crashed into three homes near the South Bend Regional Airport.

Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Maggie Scroope said the condition of Jim Rodgers was upgraded from serious Wednesday. She said Christopher Evans remains in fair condition.

The men were aboard a plane from Tulsa that crashed March 17, killing former University of Oklahoma quarterback Steve Davis and businessman Wes Caves.

National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Keith Holloway said a preliminary report on the plane crash might be released this week.
