Posted on August 10th, 2010 by Zane Cagle
National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the Missouri crash in Interstate 44 that involved two school buses, a pickup truck and a tractor trailer. The crash resulted in the deaths of two teenagers and injuries to fifty-four other students. Two girls remain hospitalized; however, their names have not been released. The accident occurred when a semi slowed down for road construction and a pickup truck driven by a 19 year old man of Sullivan crashed into the back of it. Two school buses carrying high school band students then slammed into that wreck. A 15 year old girl of St. James, was killed when she was in the back seat of the first bus. Charges will probably not be filed against any drivers until the final patrol reported is completed which may take up to six weeks.
Investigators are hoping to discover some information that will make school bus travel and road construction zones more safe. Summer is a busy time for road construction and wrecks are common in work zones. The Missouri Department of Transportation is doing www.flomaxbuyonline.com work on 250 bridges and improving 5,600 miles of roadway. Accidents continue to happen in spite of their safety education efforts, signage, stricter penalties and fines for construction area violations.
