Coroner: Most Victims Died on Impact

(LEXINGTON, Ky.) -- A coroner says he thinks most of the 49 victims of Comair Flight 5191 died on impact.

The plane crashed shortly after takeoff on Sunday morning at Lexington's Blue Grass Airport. Forty-nine people were killed.

Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn said autopsies on the victims revealed that most were killed by blunt force trauma. He previously said he thought the victims died in the fire that engulfed the plane after it collided with some trees near the end of runway 26.

Ginn said he doesn't know when all 49 bodies will be identified.
