NTSB has determined that an electrical generator set (genset) failure and subsequent loss of steering led to the grounding of a towing vessel near Greenville, Mississippi, on November 21, 2021. The towing vessel Marquette Warrior was pushing 35 loaded dry cargo barges down the Lower Mississippi River, when several barges grounded on the riverbank. Four barges were damaged, including a hopper barge with bean cargo that partially sank. None of the nine people on board the Marquette Warrior were injured. The grounding resulted in $1.24 million in damages to the vessel, barges and cargo.

Today, reiterates its call for lap and shoulder seatbelts in all school buses.

An investigation into a Decatur, Tennessee, crash between a school bus and a service utility truck that killed two—including a 7-year-old child—has led NTSB to reiterate past recommendations that could have prevented this crash. The is renewing its 2018 recommendation that states require passenger lap and shoulder belts on new, large school buses as well as its call to require systems that prevent lane departure on heavy vehicles, first issued in 2010 and updated in 2021. All recommendations remain open.

“This case is a gut-wrenching reminder that failure to act on our recommendations can lead to unimaginable — and preventable — tragedy,” said NTSB Chair Jennifer Homendy. “School buses are often praised for their safety record, but we’ve become complacent. Children’s lives are at stake. The time to act is now.”
