NTSB to meet on fatal Mo. school bus crash


WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will hold a board meeting on last year's fatal chain-reaction crash in Gray Summit, Mo.

NTSB will determine the probable cause and consider proposed safety recommendations on the Aug. 5, 2010, multi-vehicle highway accident.

The accident involved a series of collisions. First, a pickup truck struck the back of a stopped truck-tractor. Then, a school bus struck the back of the pickup truck. Finally, the school bus was struck in the rear by another school bus that had been following.

Two teenagers — one in a school bus and one in the pickup truck — were killed, and 38 others were injured.

Here are the NTSB meeting details:
