NTSB wonโ€™t investigate Tennessee bus crash due to furloughs

The National Transportation Safety Board is not sending anyone to investigate yesterdayโ€™s deadly bus crash in Tennessee because the government shutdown furloughed all of its highway investigators, an NTSB official said.

“In this particular case I think itโ€™s highly likely that we would have responded to it, but again, with our investigators furloughed, itโ€™s impossible to do that,” Sharon Bryson, deputy director of communications for the NTSB, told NBC News.
