New Research Released Following Deadly Vehicle Pileup on Frozen Fort Worth Highway
Many Texans remember the deadly pileup that occurred on I-35W in Fort Worth on February 11, 2021. Despite illuminated highway signs warning of icy conditions, more than 130 cars and tractor trailers skidded across the ice-coated toll lanes, culminating in one of the deadliest crashes in US history.
The National Transportation Safety Board has published 1,400 pages of inquiry documents, revealing new insights and data regarding the tragedy. The documents contain interviews with witnesses and first responders, data on vehicle speeds, and road conditions in the days and hours before the incident. It does not, however, offer any judgments on the likely cause of the crash, investigator findings, or recommendations. This spring, a final study with probable cause and recommendations is scheduled to be released.
