NTSB produced 3D animation of Sky Express bus crash
As part of the National Transportation Safety Board’s investigation of the May 2011 Sky Express bus crash in Caroline County, its investigators produced an animated reproduction of the crash. The crash on Interstate 95 killed four passengers.
The video is short, but gives you a good idea of what happened. There is another animation of what happens to bus passengers with and without safety belts.
The simulation of the crash.
Next is the simulation of belted and unbelted passengers.
Below are three videos of reactions following the NTSB’s meeting on the Sky Express crash. In the first two you’ll hear NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman talking to the press and in the third video is Peter Pantuso, president and CEO of the American Bus Association.
