$70M Claims Pending Over Marine Jet Crash In SD

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - More than $70 million in claims are unresolved over last year's crash of a Marine Corps jet in a San Diego County neighborhood.

The military says a series of bad decisions allowed the F-18 to crash in University City after an engine failure on Dec. 8. The crash killed four people, destroyed two homes and damaged others.

The North County Times reported Wednesday that 14 claims with the Navy for $70.1 million are still pending. Navy spokeswoman Jennifer Zeldis says a dozen other claims were settled for $83,000.

The Navy won't say whether any claims were submitted by Dong Yun Yoon, whose wife, two daughters and mother-in-law were killed.

The pilot ejected safely from the plane and has resumed training flights.
