VIRGINIA BEACH-- It will be weeks before investigators figure out exactly what caused the crash of an Oceana-based F/A-18D Hornet on Friday, officials are making sure those displaced by the incident are taken care of and that no hazardous material in the area pose a threat to the neighborhood.
Vehicles were towed away from Mayfair Mews Apartments to clear the way for the investigation. Residents were picking their cars Sunday and Monday.
14 were claimed on Sunday and 15 others were still parked at the Convention Center Monday.
Shirley Fritzlee was picking up her vehicle Monday morning. She wasn't home when the jet crashed.
"Unbelief, unbelief and just thank God I wasn't there. I can't do it, I'll cry. I do real well unless I start talking about it," said Fritzlee.
Vehicles can be picked up 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. They will only be handed over to the car owners so residents will need valid ID's. A portable DMV will also be set up at the Convention Center to give people new Identification Cards.
Any unclaimed vehicles at the close of business Tuesday will be towed to a city lot and owners should contact the Virginia Beach Public Information Center at 757-385-3111 to locate their vehicle. Cars towed Friday may also be located by calling the same phone number.
On Monday morning, there were 15 vehicles waiting to be claimed. 3 people had picked up their vehicles by noon.
"Unbelief, unbelief and just thank God I wasn't there. I can't do it, I'll cry. I do real well unless I start talking about it," said Shirley Fritzlee.
