NTSB report on Chippewa Falls bus accident

The NTSB held a press conference today on the Chippewa Falls Senior Hign bus accident. Here are a few of the details they released:

*One of the sets of brakes on the bus "were seriously out of adjustment."
*The bus driver was not wearing his glasses, despite having a glasses restriction on his license.
*The bus driver may also have exceeded regulations for number of consecutive hours he was awake.

This information does not assign blame to the bus driver or anyone else. These are just possible contributing factors. The NTSB should be finishing up its investigation on Thursday
