NTSB releases final report on 2010 fatal Ky. crash

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The National Transportation Safety Board has released the final written report detailing a fatal 2010 truck crash that killed 11 on a Kentucky highway, effectively closing the investigation.

The 85-page report released Tuesday included the previously disclosed recommendation that truckers and bus drivers be barred from using a cell phone while operating a vehicle, 1 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 10 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 all 50 states for action.
