A breakdown of safety management throughout the Washington-area transit system preceded the Metrorail crash last summer that killed nine people, a federal official said Tuesday.
NTSB Chairman Deborah A.P. Hersman said more, as Politico reported: "While we value the technical expertise that groups like ACRE can provide ... it is counterproductive when an organization breaches the party agreement and publicly interprets or comments on investigation information."
