NTSB investigating fiery crash on I-70; report coming in a few weeks | #schoolsaftey

Jennifer L. Homendy, chair of the National Transportation Safety Board, speaks Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2023, about the fatal five-vehicle crash a day earlier on I-70 in Etna, Licking County, that killed six people, including three students and three chaperones. At left is Col.Charles A. Jones, Ohio State Highway Patrol Superintendent, and at right is Kenneth Bragg, senior accident investigator with the NTSB's Office of Highway Safety. The news conference was held at the Ohio State Highway Patrol Academy on 17th Avenue in Columbus, Ohio.

The National Transportation Safety Board was able to retrieve electronic control modules, more commonly called “black boxes,” from some of the five vehicles involved in a deadly crash on Interstate 70 in Licking County on Tuesday that killed six people, NTSB chair Jennifer Homendy said in a media briefing Wednesday afternoon.

Homendy said there is also some external video footage that may have come from other vehicles not involved in the fiery crash, which the Ohio Highway Patrol said occurred at 8:52 a.m. and apparently resulted from a backup of an earlier crash further west on I-70 in Franklin County.

In the coming days, the NTSB will document the crash site, Homendy said, and in about two to three weeks the agency will issue a preliminary report. The full investigation and a final report could take as long as 18 months, she said.
