NTSB investigators used data provided by various sources and may not have traveled in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft incident report.

After receiving a taxi clearance, which included holding short of runway 1L, the crew of Chataqua Flight 4376 proceeded to taxi across runway 1L, without clearance, resulting in a near collision with a departing Sun Country Boeing 727-200. The First Officer of Chataqua Flight 4376 reported that he was handling radio communications and had received the taxi clearance, which included the hold-short limitation, and read-back the clearance to ground control. According to the captain, contributing factors to the incident were crew fatigue, the cold temperature of the cockpit, and the windows being obscured with de-icing fluid.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this incident to be:

the hold-short clearance not being followed by the flightcrew, which resulted in a near collision with the departing Boeing 727-200.
