The National Transportation Safety Board has released the final written report detailing the fatal 2010 truck crash that killed 11 people on a Kentucky highway. This effectively closes the Board’s investigation. The report included the previously-disclosed recommendation that truckers and bus drivers be barred 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 en route to a wedding. The NTSB sent its recommendation to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and to all 50 states for action.
