Dr. Earl Weener The Honorable Earl F. Weener, Ph.D, NTSB

Presentation: The National Transportation Safety Board, NTSB, is charged with determining the probable cause of transportation accidents, including surface transportation accidents. On August 1st, 2007 the collapse of a bridge on the I-35 Interstate highway in Minneapolis, MN, resulted in thirteen fatalities and injuries to 145 people. On July 10th, 2006 in Boston, MA, a section of suspended concrete ceiling panels in the Interstate 90 (I-90) connector tunnel en-route to Logan Airport fell, crushing a vehicle and killing a passenger. The investigations of these two accidents by the NTSB will be discussed with particular emphasis on how engineering errors contributed to the accidents.
