YMCA at crash site reopens after inspection

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The YMCA in West Nashville that was the site of a small plane crash on Monday night has reopened.

Police said Friday afternoon that specially trained dogs assisted in a final inspection of the area around the crash and that additional material was discovered and collected. The Bellevue YMCA said the facility had reopened.

The crash killed a feedlot owner from Pawnee Rock, Kan., along with his wife and the couple's daughter and granddaughter. The four had been traveling to Nashville for the National Cattlemen's Beef Association Trade Show.

The flight missed its first approach at the airport and was preparing for a second one when it crashed.

The owners of 16 vehicles in the debris area from the crash have been retrieving their vehicles since Wednesday.
