WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said it will investigate a fatal highway crash in California on Tuesday that killed at least 13 people.
A Ford Expedition crammed with 25 adults and children was slammed by a tractor-trailer in the farming community of Holtville near the U.S.-Mexico border, officials said. The safety board is conducting a safety investigation in concert with the California Highway Patrol. The agency’s investigator-in-charge was expected to arrive on Wednesday, the NTSB said.
