The National Transportation Safety Board held a 2-day public hearing on August 3 - 4, 2010 to gather additional factual information for the ongoing investigation into the rollover and fire of a truck-tractor and cargo tank semitrailer carrying liquefied petroleum gas in Indianapolis, Indiana on October 22, 2009.
The goal of the hearing was for the Safety Board to gather technical information that could be instrumental in identifying strategic measures for effectively reducing the rollover of cargo tank vehicles and the unintended subsequent release of hazardous materials. The Board invited expert witnesses to provide sworn testimony. Additionally, several organizations were granted "party status" to the hearing so that they could question the witnesses directly. The witnesses and parties represented a range of government and industry communities and other officials who provide oversight.
