Airport map company will not face trial in Comair crash

A company that designs airport maps will not have to face trial in the deadly Comair crash in Lexington.

A judge Monday ruled Jeppesen Sanderson was not responsible for the 2006 crash that killed 49 people on board.

Jeppensen's airport chart the morning of the crash did not mention a taxiway barrier that forced planes to take a different route to the runway.

But the judge says there's no evidence the Comair pilots relied on the chart when they took off from a runway that was too short.
