NTSB won’t investigate Tennessee bus crash due to furloughs

NTSB won’t investigate Tennessee bus crash due to furloughs

The National Transportation Safety Board is not sending anyone to investigate yesterday’s deadly bus crash in Tennessee because the government shutdown furloughed all of its highway investigators, an NTSB official said.

“In this particular case I think it’s highly likely that we would have responded to it, but again, with our investigators furloughed, it’s impossible to do that,” Sharon Bryson, deputy director of communications for the NTSB, told NBC News.
