NTSB TO MEET ON 2009 MULTIVEHICLE COLLISION IN OKLAHOMA

 

************************************************************

The National Transportation Safety Board will hold a public

Board meeting on Tuesday, September 28, 2010, at 9:30 a.m.

in its Board Room and Conference Center, 429 L'Enfant Plaza,

S.W., Washington, D.C. There is one agenda item.

 

On June 26, 2009, a multivehicle accident occurred on

Interstate 44 near Miami, Oklahoma, shortly after a minor

accident in the same vicinity occurred that created a queue

of slowing and stopped vehicles. A truck driver operating a

2008 Volvo truck-tractor in combination with a 2009 Great

Dane refrigerated semitrailer was traveling at approximately

70 mph and collided with the vehicle queue, resulting in 10

fatalities and 5 minor-to-serious injuries in 6 passenger

vehicles in the queue. The driver of the Volvo combination

unit was also seriously injured.

 

A live and archived webcast of the proceedings will be

available on the Board's website at

support details are available under "Board Meetings" on the

NTSB website. To report any problems, please call 703-993-

A summary of the Board's final report, which will include

findings, probable cause and safety recommendations, will

meeting. The entire report will appear on the website

several weeks later. The accident docket can be accessed at
