NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The YMCA in West Nashville that was the site of a small plane crash on Monday night is expected to reopen on Friday.

According to police, specially trained dogs will be brought to the site to assist in a final inspection and ensure that all human remains have been removed.

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. Only one remained on Thursday afternoon.
