Three-dimensional scan of the Mercedes-Benz limo van involved in the June 7, 2014, crash in Cranbury, N.J. (NTSB)
The probable cause of a highly publicized June 2014 fatal crash with a limousine carrying comedian Tracy Morgan was the truck driver’s fatigue, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. The Walmart driver who triggered the multi-vehicle pileup near Cranbury, N.J., was awake for more than 28 hours prior to the crash.
Key NTSB recommendation: Require that modifications to limo van vehicles (1) retain a full-sized exit on at least one side of the vehicle’s passenger compartment, and (2) have at least one other exit located on the front, back, or roof of the passenger compartment.
