Authorities: All accounted for in Navy jet crash

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) – Fire officials say they have accounted for everyone who lived at a Virginia apartment complex where a Navy fighter jet crashed. Capt. Tim Riley is the battalion chief and spokesman for the Virginia Beach fire department. He said Saturday morning that the last three people at the apartment complex had been accounted for, and that there appeared to be no fatalities. Riley says crews are not actively searching for anyone, but that could change if there may have been a guest in an apartment that authorities don’t know about. The fighter jet was being piloted by a student and his trainer Friday when the plane malfunctioned over Virginia’s most populated city. The men ejected moments before the jet crashed into the apartment complex.
