 Media Advisory: School Bus Crashes Subject of NTSB Special Investigation Report, Meeting

The National Transportation Saf​ety Board announced Monday it has scheduled a board meeting for 9:30 a.m., May 22, 2018, to consider the Special Investigation Report based on the investigation of two 2016 school bus crashes.

The Special Investigation Report examines selective issues in school bus transportation safety discovered during the NTSB’s investigation of the Nov. 1, 2016, crash involving a Baltimore City school bus and a transit bus, and, the Nov. 21, 2016, crash of a Hamilton County school bus in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  The two crashes injured 37 people and killed 12.

Despite the overall safety of school buses, the NTSB continues to investigate school bus crashes in which fatalities and injuries occur.  The NTSB’s Special Investigation Report will detail the probable cause for each crash, but by combining both investigations into one comprehensive report, the NTSB is able to focus on specific areas of concern found in both crashes, which allows the agency to highlight where recommendations are needed to continue to improve school bus transportation safety.

The meeting is open to the public and will be held in the NTSB’s Boardroom and Conference Center, 420 10th Street, SW, Washington. A link to a live webcast of the meeting will be available shortly before the start of the meeting at http://ntsb.capitolconnection.org/.

The accident investigation pages for each crash (https://go.usa.gov/xQWpz  and https://go.usa.gov/xQWpJ) provides links to previously released information.
