 NTSB to Meet on Multivehicle Crash in Illinois

The National Transportation Safety Board is scheduled to meet Tuesday to determine the probable cause of the Jan. 27, 2014, crash near Naperville, Ill.
 
A truck tractor semitrailer, operated by DND International Inc., collided with several vehicles that were providing aid to a disabled tractor-trailer that had stopped in the right lane of eastbound Interstate 88. The DND truck first struck an Illinois State Police patrol car, pushing it off the road. Flames engulfed the patrol car, seriously injuring the police officer. The truck then crashed into a Highway Emergency Lane Patrol (HELP) truck, pinning it between the striking truck and the disabled tractor-trailer and fatally injuring the HELP truck driver. That impact then pushed the disabled tractor-trailer into a heavy-duty tow truck.
