NTSB: Charter Bus Speeding Before Deadly Crash


The NTSB says the driver of a private charter bus was speeding when it slammed into an MTA bus on Monday, killing three people.

“As we know the posted speed limit is 30 mph and a preliminary evaluation of the video shows that the motorcoach was traveling between 54 and 62 mph,” the NTSB’s Robert Accetta said.

An MTA bus was turning on Northern Boulevard when it was struck by the Dahlia bus.

Early toxicology results show there were no drugs or alcohol in the system of the Dahlia bus driver, Raymond Mong.  He was killed, along with a passenger in the MTA bus and a pedestrian.

The NTSB investigation is looking at whether driver fatigue was a factor in the crash.
