NTSB Meeting Next Week on Greyhound Highway 101 Crash

The bus crashed into a concrete median on Highway 101 in San Jose on Jan.19, 2016. Two passengers died in the crash.

The National Transportation Safety Board has scheduled a March 14 meeting at its headquarters in Washington, D.C., about its investigation of a Jan. 19, 2016, crash of a Greyhound bus in San Jose, Calif. The bus struck a concrete median on Highway 101 about 6:37 a.m., while en route from Los Angeles with scheduled stops in San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland. At the time it was dark, with light to heavy rain and winds of 11-23 mph reported in the area, according to NTSB.

The driver, age 58, and 20 passengers were aboard the bus when it crashed, rolled 90 degrees onto its right side, and came to rest on top of the barrier about 65 feet from the point of initial impact. The crash killed two of the passengers.

NTSB's preliminary findings indicated no mechanical defects were found during initial inspection of the bus, and the driver's toxicology tests were negative for alcohol or illegal drugs. The bus was equipped with "multiple systems capable of recording and transmitting event-related data, including inward- and outward-facing cameras and location tracking," NTSB reported.

This will be a public meeting. The public also can watch a webcast of the meeting by accessing a link under News & Events at www.ntsb.gov.
