Denver plane crash victim upgraded to fair

DENVER, Colorado ” One of four people still hospitalized after a jetliner veered off a runway and caught fire at the Denver airport has been upgraded to fair condition.

The University of Colorado Hospital in Denver said Wednesday the patient had improved from serious condition.

Another patient at that hospital is in fair condition. Two others are in good condition at Denver Health Medical Center.

One of the four was the captain, who was flying the plane, but his condition hasn’t been released.

The Houston-bound Continental Airlines 737 wound up in a snowy ravine at Denver International Airport on Saturday night. Thirty-eight people were injured.

The National Transportation Safety Board has not determined the cause. The plane won’t be moved until after Christmas.
