University City neighborhood recovers a year after deadly jet crash

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) -- Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of the military jet crash in University City that killed four family members.

The FA-18 jet crash destroyed two homes and caused an inferno that forced a neighborhood evacuation.

At least one family who lost their home is still dealing with their insurance company.

A military investigation revealed that poor maintenance of the FA-18, along with critical errors by the pilot and commanders on the ground, led to the crash.

More than a dozen claims totaling $100 million have been filed against the military.
