Final Report on Crash that Killed 11 in Kentucky

The National Transportation Safety Board has released the final report detailing the fatal 2010 truck crash that killed 11 people on a highway in Kentucky. This closes the Board’s investigation.  The report included the recommendation that truckers and bus drivers be banned from using a cell phone while operating a vehicle, one of the most significant highway safety measures recommended since the push for mandatory seat belts decades ago.  The March 26, 2010, crash killed an Alabama truck driver and ten members of a Kentucky Mennonite community riding in a van on the way to a wedding.  The NTSB sent its recommendation to all 50 states and to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for implementation.
