WASHINGTON | The National Transportation Safety Board says it has interviewed 12 Metro employees as part of the investigation into an accident that killed two workers.

The workers were crushed on the tracks when a maintenance truck backed into them on Tuesday. The NTSB said Friday that among those interviewed were the four employees who were in the vehicle during the accident, and three employees from the operations control center.

Federal investigators are looking into Metro’s worker safety rules and training guidelines. They also are inspecting the truck, reviewing maintenance records and determining how fast it was going.

The NTSB plans to interview other workers, compile radio and telephone communication and evaluate visibility. Officials did not provide a cause for the accident.
