NTSB Meeting Notice for 7-26-11

The National Transportation Safety Board published a notice in today’s Federal Register announcing a public meeting on July 26th, 2011 at the NTSB Conference Center in Washington, DC. The meeting will review the results of their investigation of a 2009 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cargo tank rollover accident and fire in Indianapolis, IN.

Members of the NTSB, the Chemical Safety Board, and PHMSA have all expressed concern about the large number of hazmat cargo tank roll over accidents in the last couple of years. This meeting is about this one particular accident, but we can probably expect some comments on the wider problem during the discussion of the root cause of this accident.

The meeting will be webcast live and the webcast will be available after the meeting on the NTSB home page. The link will be found under the ‘News & Events’ heading.
